The Inova Center for Advanced Radiation Oncology and Proton Therapy at the Inova Schar Cancer Institute is seeking applications for its newly created Mather Proton Therapy Fellowship Program.
The Inova Center for Advanced Radiation Oncology and Proton Therapy offers:
The most advanced radiation equipment in the Washington, DC region
Experience and clinical knowledge from a team of specialists
Interaction with a patient’s entire cancer care team – surgeons, medical oncologists, nurses, genetic counselors – to provide the best, and most personalized, treatment plan
Our renowned specialists use the latest techniques and technology to ensure the highest level of care is provided to patients.
This 1-year non-ACGME accredited fellowship program is designed to provide a rigorous opportunity to develop a thorough understanding in the technical application of proton therapy delivery, clinical management of proton therapy patients, and the radiation biology and physics of proton therapy. The fellow will have a novel opportunity to develop a skill set that many current trainees may not have access to in residency. Based out of the Inova Schar Cancer Center in Falls Church, Virginia, the fellow will be readily incorporated into the clinical team to provide high quality cancer therapy using novel technology and therapies in a setting where multidisciplinary management fosters excellence in patient care, tailored to each patient’s needs.
Scope of Training:
The scope of training is tailored to provide a rich diversity of cases from which patients will be triaged for proton therapy based on consensus guidelines. As a fellow, you will spend most of your time at the Inova Schar Cancer Institute where you will assist in the consultation, on-treatment management, and follow-up of patients treated with proton therapy; and attend multidisciplinary clinics, tumor boards and didactic sessions. The primary focus of this fellowship is clinical, with a required clinical research project.
Applicants must have successfully completed an accredited radiation oncology residency program and be eligible for licensure in the state of Virginia. ABR certification or ABR board eligibility in Radiation Oncology or an equivalent board is required. The Inova Schar Cancer Institute is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Women, minorities and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
