Description
VIRTUAL RADIATION ONCOLOGY
Students will spend time learning more about the field, its technical basis and sub-disciplines through prerecorded lectures. The student will then participate in the virtual clinical work-up of patients in preparation for radiation therapy as well as in the treatment and follow up of those already treated patients. Students will rotate with individual attendings and residents through their clinic virtually seeing and assessing patients. Students will spend time learning to contour on several cases that will be reviewed and discussed with radiation oncology residents and attendings. A small research project or discussion on a subset of radiation oncology will be completed during the fourth week with the course closing via a mini-presentation and final exam. All elements can be conducted remotely through online platform. For students who have already rotated in person or virtual, this course can provide additional depth and can be customized.
