Clinical teaching conferences
Multiple teaching conferences are held throughout each month. These focus on each of the clinical sites in oncology, with a focus on a particular cancer during each session. Educational discussions are individualized and cover epidemiology, pathology, staging, natural history, anatomy, radiation doses and treatment planning techniques, possible treatment complications, tumor control, and survival statistics. Pertinent literature is discussed, including retrospective, prospective, and randomized studies.
Radiation Oncology conducts monthly morbidity and mortality rounds as well, where residents present pertinent cases along with a discussion of available literature on each topic. Discussions are held with residents and attending physicians.
