Description
The Stanford Department of Radiation Oncology welcomes 3rd and 4th year medical students interested in a 4-week rotation. Located in a NCI designated cancer center at the heart of Silicon Valley, our clerkship offers excellent clinical training for the development of future leaders of our field. Each rotation consists of a 4-week block that adheres to the Stanford University School of Medicine rotation schedule. During this rotation, the medical student will be assigned to one faculty member each day with whom he or she will see patients with in clinic. The first two weeks consist of multidisciplinary teams and tumor boards; exposing students to the entire spectrum of radiation oncology. The last two weeks of the rotation will consist of personalized, intensive work with faculty members in fields of interest to the student. Students will attend weekly lectures with the residents on different radiation oncology topics and in addition, will have student specific lectures on general radiation oncology topics such as treatment planning. During the clerkship, students will be expected to work-up patients, perform physical exams, and present cases to faculty. Students will also be exposed to treatment planning, simulations, and treatment deliveries throughout the rotation. At the end of the clerkship, students will be expected to give a 10-minute presentation on a topic of their choosing. For students interested in pursuing additional experience within our department, an advanced elective (RADO 398A) is available following the completion of the first rotation.
