Resident & Mentor Meetings

Residency Candidate Roundtable Discussions with Prospective Mentors

 

Chaired by Dr. Kim Selting of the University of Missouri, VCS will host a special event for our Resident attendees and the mentors who are searching for the right fit for their school or clinic!  This event will take place on Friday, October 27th at approximately 5:30 pm.  Watch the conference schedule for updated information.

If you are a mentor who is interested in having a table at this meeting, please email Dr. Selting at seltingk@missouri.edu.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
If you plan to enter the match or otherwise seek an oncology internship or residency, this session is for you.  Most programs consist of medical oncology training but some will also have radiation oncology programs.  Once on site at the conference, you will have an opportunity to sign up for time slots to meet with the various mentors that are present.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
We suggest that you come prepared with a pen and some paper to take notes, business cards to help mentors remember you, and if you wish, you can bring a CV.

WHO WILL I BE MEETING WITH?
You will be meeting with oncologists from training programs who are mentors and will be seeking a resident to start the following summer, typically.  In any given year, we have approximately 20-25 schools or clinics represented at this session.  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 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.
