Dear UT-DRO Community,
Effective Canada Day, July 1st, 2012, I had the honour of being appointed as the new Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology. It is a great privilege, and I am extremely proud of all the achievements of our talented inter-professional faculty and trainees. Over the past three years, I have sought input from many of you, as we refined our strategic plan, "The Transformative Agenda: Roadmap to 2017." Our Vision is "International leadership in radiation oncology, research, education, and practice"; our Mission is "We prepare future radiation oncology leaders, contribute to our communities, and improve the health of individuals and populations through discovery, application, and communication of knowledge."
While we are a relatively young University Department, we have great aspirations and ambitions to achieve our Vision and Mission. Working together across the Department, the Faculty, and the Community, our Strategic Plan will guide our activities and deliver excellence in the realms of Research, Education, and Systems Influence. By focusing on our strengths together, we will ACT (Attract, Catalyze, and Transform) Radiation Medicine, and attain our objective as global leaders.
With the commitment to excellence of our Faculty, we will succeed in achieving global impact and continue to train the leaders of tomorrow.
