Opportunity for residents to go to European oncology conference- and more

cancer treatment

The clinic is happy to announce that the board has authorized the purchase of eight tickets to the next European oncology conference. The head of the oncology department, Doctor Lakershire, and two of her fellows will be attending, as well as five residents. In addition to attending the conference, the residents will also go to a one-week specialization course about automated treatment planning prior to the actual summit.


All two, three, and four-year residents can apply. Please register yourself at the office and leave a maximum of three-hundred-word motivation letter as to why the board should choose to invest in you and how you going on the course would be an asset for this hospital.


The course, which will take place at the same hotel in Munich that the conference will be held at, will teach the residents about vmat planning. There will be demonstration of a treatment planning system machine learning equipped, meaning the systems will constantly be using the results and data from previous treatments to improve the plan for upcoming treatment programs. This system is developed by the market-leading company and is allegedly totally outstanding. Getting to work with it before it is launched is an opportunity no one would want to miss out on, and will for sure be a feather in one’s cap that future employers will look rather fondly upon.


This is an incredible opportunity for residents to learn the very complicated treatment planning techniques using top-notch technology. The tickets are very limited and sought after, as well as pricey, and we expect all residents to fully utilize the time at the course and conference. By this, the board means not only going to lessons and seminars but also networking and, in every possible, way represent our hospital.


If the course is deemed a success, the board is open to financing additional residents to go to the course next year.
