Chaired by the Resident Member-at-Large, Dr. Molly Gasparini, VCS will host a special event for our trainee attendees. This event will take place in one of our meeting spaces on Friday evening with a reception that begins at 5:15 p.m. and the roundtable appointments beginning at 6:00 p.m.

HOW CAN MY CLINIC/HOSPITAL PARTICIPATE?

If your clinic or hospital is searching for interns or residents for the coming year or years, you can register to have a table at this event. Send an email to Sandi@vetcancersociety.org if you would like to reserve a table.

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 in the foyer area of the conference site giving you the opportunity to select up to six 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.
