The field of oncology has undergone many changes in the last few years and due to the ever-growing complexity of the discipline it is imperative that specialists receive extensive training, and for this reason training programs in radiation oncology are among the most comprehensive of all specialities. Oncologists require wide-ranging training in basic science as well as in clinical medicine. These specialists need to know how to manage the side-effects of systemic treatments and radiotherapy, a...

Abstract Artificial intelligence (AI) is about to touch every aspect of radiotherapy from consultation, treatment planning, quality assurance, therapy delivery, to outcomes modeling. There is an urgent need to train radiation oncologists and medical physicists in data science to help shepherd AI solutions into clinical practice. Poorly trained personnel may do more harm than good when attempting to apply rapidly developing and complex technologies. As the amount of AI research expands in our fie...

oronavirus (COVID-19) has caused marked impact on graduate medical education for all medical specialties. Radiation Oncology and the American Board of Radiology have also had to rapidly adapt to converting education and examinations to virtual platforms. We describe our small pilot experience in transitioning our in-person mock oral examinations to a virtual platform. Survey-based assessment revealed excellent feedback regarding ease of use and educational usefulness. Our mock oral examinations ...
