The radiotherapy department at the Stillwater Cancer Center provides care in partnership with Oklahoma Cancer Specialist and Research Institute (OCSRI) and provides MD Anderson certified physicians and peer review of patient's therapy plans in Stillwater. This close relationship with OCSRI also provides easy coordination of gynecologic oncology cases if the patient's treatment plan includes the use of High Dose Rate Brachytherapy (the use of radioactive sources to safely treat intracavitary cancers like cervical cancer).
The radiotherapy department also participates in the Radiation Oncology Incident Learning System also known as "RO-ILS" with more than 425 facilities across the country to contribute patient safety data to the only medial specialty society-sponsored radiation oncology incident learning system to facilitate safer and higher quality of care in radiation oncology.
The radiation therapy department also serves as a training site for clinical practice for the medical dosimetry and radiation therapy program sponsored by the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center Radiation Therapy program and is recognized by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology as a clinical practice setting.
