Stanford University Department of Radiation Oncology is offering an advanced one-year clinical fellowship as a unique educational opportunity to those who wish to gain practical expertise and perform cutting-edge research before entering into full-time practice. The opportunity to acquire training on the management of complex diseases at one of the premier academic medical centers is an exceptional attribute of this opportunity. This is a non-ACGME fellowship, and the candidate is given an appointment as a Postdoctoral Clinical Fellow at Stanford University.
The Stanford Radiation Oncology Fellowship is designed to develop professional competence in the overall care of patients undergoing radiotherapy and to enhance technical skills in a variety of clinical areas depending on the candidate’s clinical interests. Available opportunities include: image guided radiotherapy, stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and brachytherapy. Specific clinical disease sites include: Women’s health (Gynecology and Breast), Lung, GI, GU, CNS, and Head and Neck.
The postdoctoral clinical fellow will obtain mastery of multiple SRS/SBRT platforms including Cyberknife radiosurgery, Linac-based VMAT ARC Therapy with CBCT image-guidance (TrueBeam), Intra-operative radiation therapy, and Siemens Dual-Energy CT scanner. Significant opportunities for clinical research are also available and expected, as the goal of this opportunity is to help the candidate begin a career in academic radiation oncology.
Applicants must be a graduating resident from an ACGME-accredited residency in Radiation Oncology and must be able to obtain medical licensure in California by the start date. This one-year program will start July 1, 2018, however the start date is negotiable. Applicants from the United States are expected to be board-eligible in radiation oncology at the time they begin the program. Canadian graduates are expected to have passed their qualifying exams from the Royal College. Exceptional international applicants who have completed a radiation oncology residency will be considered if they are able to obtain a valid California medical license.
Interested candidates are invited to apply with a letter of interest, CV and three references (or reference letters) to Jessica Frank, Educational Program Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org
