Why this course is needed

We believe that oncologists of the future must have excellent training in modern radiation oncology, but also have a good grounding in the basic science of oncology, statistics and the use of systemic therapies. A dedicated exposure to research in cross-disciplinary sciences, including imaging, basic sciences, drug development or information technology will provide a pathway to get prepared for a rapidly changing field where your success depends on breaking new ground. Trainees who successfully complete this course will be able to find career opportunities in clinics, clinical and basic research as well as the industry and be leaders of the future.
