The University of Florida Health Proton Therapy Institute (UFHPTI) opened in 2006 and currently treats cancers of the head and neck, base of skull, lung, sarcoma, prostate, pancreas, pituitary, central nervous system, Hodgkin lymphoma, and pediatric malignancies. More than 100,000 proton therapy treatments have been delivered to over 6,000 patients. UFHPTI is a full radiation oncology center, offering patients IMRT, IGRT, SRS, and SBRT using Varian Truebeam technology in addition to proton therapy. It compliments a full education program including University of Florida residents and radiation oncology fellows.
The University of Florida Health Proton Therapy Institute (UFHPTI) is home to the largest pediatric proton therapy program in the United States, with over 220 children treated in 2016. The majority of children are treated on prospective treatment protocols for central nervous system tumors, sarcomas, and other solid tumors adjacent to critical radiosensitive organs. UFHPTI has offered a fellowship position in pediatric proton therapy since 2011. The fellowship is a 12-month program which can be renewed for an additional year with consensus of the program director and the fellow. The goals are to develop clinical expertise in the management of pediatric malignancies and technical expertise in the application of proton therapy. Fellows will be expected to complete a proton therapy related research project. • The pediatric fellowship director is Daniel Indelicato, M.D.: firstname.lastname@example.org • The fellow will be formally appointed as Adjunct Clinical Post Doctoral Associate in the University of Florida College of Medicine with commensurate salary and benefits.
