The Department of Radiation Oncology hosts up to two fellows each year in clinical radiation oncology. During these 12-month full-time appointments, the fellow will gain extensive experience and expertise in the indications for photon and proton therapy, selection of patients for treatment and across treatment platforms, unique target volume delineation principles and considerations, treatment-planning strategies, and technical aspects related to treatment delivery. The fellow will work with disease-site clinical teams to see pediatric and adult patients and will see a broad range of cancers. The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research at the institution. These opportunities can range from accrual to ongoing IRB-approved clinical registries and trials, development of new clinical protocols, participation in the analysis of patients treated using department registries or other clinical research studies, development of investigator-initiated studies, and/or coordination of prospective treatment clinical trials.
