Radiation Oncology Fellowship
The Fellowship Program has three streams:
- One-year Clinical Research
- One-year Clinical Experiential
- Two-year Research
The one-year Clinical Research Program:
- enables fellows to acquire clinical expertise in one or two sites and to complete a research project
- offers fellows 50-60% of time devoted to clinical activities; the remainder is protected for research.
The one-year Clinical Experiential Fellowship:
- offers a limited number of positions to candidates with an interest in obtaining a broader clinical experience than is offered in the Clinical Research Fellowship Program
- encourages research exposure, but limits such activity to 20% protected time
The two-year Research Fellowship Program:
- emphasizes detailed training in the principles and conduct of scientific research
- offers fellows 80% of time protected for research activities
- requires that fellows obtain a graduate degree (generally a Master’s degree, although PhD will be considered for suitable candidates) through one of the following departments within the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto:
- Institute for Medical Science (basic and translational science)
- Medical Biophysics (basic science)
- Community Health (clinical epidemiology)
- Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (for education research)
The Fellowship Program has attracted a large number of excellent candidates from Australia, Europe, Asia, South America, the USA and Canada. With its cadre of fellows and the number of faculty involved in a broad spectrum of research, it offers an opportunity to interact with individuals across multiple disciplines of radiation medicine and science.
Support and Resources
Each fellow has one or two faculty members assigned as supervisors, plus supervisors from other departments, where appropriate.
The Radiation Oncology Fellowship Program at the University of Toronto is one of the largest and most successful of its kind in North America.
A wide range of supervisors and positions are offered within the research and clinical programs of the Radiation Medicine Program (RMP), making the RMP a major contributor to the success of this program.
The program is funded by the supervisors and the hospital departments, and the number of positions available each year depends on the funding available. Extra positions may be made available for candidates who bring full or part funding through grants or support from their home centres or government. Personal self-funding not permitted.
Fellows must complete a number of tasks to register with provincial and local bodies. The registration process is outlined on our current fellows page.
