5th Annual Assessment Workshop

Sponsored by the Department of Radiation Oncology at UCSD and UCLA

UCSD-UCLA Resident and Physician Education Symposium

Registration is now CLOSED. All workshops have met capacity.

About the Course: The objectives of this workshop are for the attendee to 1) gain an understanding of the variability in treatment patterns that exist among practicing radiation oncologists, 2) develop a better familiarity with what constitutes the ‘standard of care’ in a rapidly evolving and heavily technologically-based specialty, and 3) engage further in self-directed learning through the identification of gaps in existing knowledge base. Saturday’s course will consist of intensive one-on-one case-based review sessions with renowned academic faculty and community practice physicians from across the United States. A rigorous evaluation process will be instituted and written/verbal feedback provided to attendees. The Sunday session will include didactic lectures given by expert faculty reviewing general management strategies and high yield topics from across disease sites. Lastly, this course will offer a valuable opportunity for residents to share educational resources and experiences from across residency programs in a highly collegial environment. There will be ample opportunity to network with fellow residents and practicing radiation oncologists. A complete agenda will be available soon.

Who is this course designed for? Radiation oncology post-graduate year five residents and young physicians in practice, particularly those preparing for board exams, are encouraged to attend.

Elements of Competence: This educational forum has been designed to address the six core competencies as promoted by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) with respect to patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, systems based-practice, interpersonal skills and communication, and professionalism.

Registration: UCSD Radiation Oncology Learning Center
