ACRO’s Mentorship Program provides a unique opportunity for medical students, residents and attending Radiation Oncologists from around the country to be matched together. If you’re interested in getting involved, please fill out the online form (link below). This questionnaire helps our team better understand your personal interests and goals in a mentorship relationship. Based on these responses, mentors and mentees may be paired based on any number of commonalities – academics, private practice, disease site, treatment techniques, geography, or any other shared passion. Once assigned, we will facilitate arranging a one-on-one meeting at the annual ASTRO and ACRO conferences for the mentor and mentee. We believe these relationships are mutually beneficial and allow for an important dialogue between trainees and practitioners. For residents in particular, it provides a means to ask questions, find new research initiatives, or simply network beyond the reach of their home institution.
If you are a trainee or early career Radiation Oncologist interested in being paired with a mentor, or a more experienced ACRO member willing to volunteer to become a mentor, please fill out our simple online application form.
