Residency Candidate Roundtables

Friday, October 15, 2021

5:30 – 7:00 pm

 

Chaired by the Resident Member-at-Large, Dr. Sridhar Veluvolu of the University of California, Davis, 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 at the Boise Centre on Friday evening at 5:30 pm.

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.

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 25-30 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.
