Reception Sponsored by

 

Chaired by the Resident Member-at-Large, Dr. Sridhar Veluvolu, VCS will host a special event for our trainee attendees.  This event will take place at the Hilton Norfolk The Main in the Granby Ballroom (3rd floor) on Friday evening with a reception that begins at 5:15 pm and the roundtable appointments beginning at 6:00 pm.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
If you plan to enter the match or otherwise seek an oncology internship or residency, this session is for you.  Programs in attendance are searching for medical oncology trainees, radiation oncology trainees, as well as other positions that may be of interest to you.

WHO WILL I MEET WITH?
You will schedule appointments with representatives from a wide variety of training programs who are seeking to fill positions that will most likely start the following summer.  In any given year, approximately 25 schools or clinics are represented at this event.  Clinics and universities with approved training programs will attend, including a few international programs, and there will be representation by both large and small programs.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THIS SESSION?
Consider what type of residency or internship that you are seeking (academic versus private practice for instance). Think about whether you are interested in basic or clinical research and whether you have any relevant interests or skills to discuss or offer.  When the sign-up period begins on Friday morning, select appointments that meet your interests.

REGISTERING FOR APPOINTMENTS:  On Friday mid-morning, sign-up sheets will be placed outside of the Main Ballroom giving you the opportunity to select up to 6 appointments, each of which are 15 minutes long and will include up to five other trainees.  The sign-up sheets will remain in place until completion of the afternoon break.  Later that evening, trainees will visit with mentors from clinics that they have selected who will explain their program to you.
