University of Toronto Radiation Oncology Fellowship at the Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre

The Radiation Oncology Clinical Research Fellowship program at the Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre (Odette) is affiliated with the University of Toronto. The program has grown over the past decade to accommodate eight to 10 trainees annually. Successful fellows have been selected from North America, Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East and Australia. Aside from pediatrics and sarcoma, the program at Odette offers comprehensive clinical and research experience in all tumour disease sites.

What kinds of fellowships are offered?

The Odette radiation oncology program has one of the largest patient volumes in North America, with more than 7,000 new patient visits per year. The department is equipped with 13 state-of-the-art linear accelerators, four CT simulators, one MRI simulator, and a fully functional brachytherapy operating suite, a Gamma Knife Icon system and an Elekta MRI linear accelerator (MR-Linac).

The fellowship program at Odette is designed for trainees who want additional clinical training and research experience before entering full-time radiation oncology practice. There are the options of a one- or two-year program that can be tailored to meet the needs and interests of the applicant. Clinical sites can be combined; for example, previous fellows have split the year between two sites like gastrointestinal and lung, focusing on stereotactic body radiotherapy. The two-year program is generally offered to trainees who would like to focus more on research and can be combined with a master’s program affiliated with the department. (Applicants will have to apply successfully to the master’s program separately.)
