The Dr. Nancy K. Welker Fellowship in Proton Therapy and Advanced Radiation Modalities - (200000Z3)
The University of Maryland Department of Radiation Oncology is offering a 1-year clinical fellowship as a unique educational opportunity for the acquisition of practical expertise in advanced radiation modalities. This is a non-ACGME fellowship, and the candidate selected will be given a faculty appointment as an Instructor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
The fellowship is designed to develop professional competence in the care of patients undergoing radiation therapy, with a special focus on enhancing technical skills in advanced radiation modalities. These include proton treatment at our state-of-the-art Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC), deep and external thermal therapy, and training in the use of the University of Maryland-developed GammaPod(tm) stereotactic radiation therapy system for early-stage breast cancer. Experience in additional advanced radiation modalities are optional.
The fellowship program emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to the radiation treatment of disease, and the fellow will attend multidisciplinary clinics and tumor boards. Clinical time will be spent mostly at MPTC for their training experience. Although the focus of the fellowship is clinical, the fellow will have opportunities to participate in our robust research program, inclusive of national cooperative trials, investigator-initiated studies, as well as basic and translational research.
Applicants must be graduating residents from an ACGME-accredited residency in radiation oncology. This 1-year program will begin in July 2021 and ends in June 2022. Applicants are expected to be board-eligible in radiation oncology at the time they begin the fellowship.

Candidates for this position must be legally authorized to work without an employer sponsored visa. The Fellow must obtain a Maryland Physician license and Maryland Controlled and Dangerous Substance license by the start of the fellowship.
