ASTRO-group with Dr. Fields [View Image]Every year, the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) — the world’s leading professional society for physicians, biologists, physicists, radiation therapists, dosimetrists and other healthcare professionals specializing in radiation therapy — holds a multi-day conference for members to network, share research findings, learn from one another and discuss developments in the field of radiation oncology. This year, the highly anticipated ASTRO Annual Meeting took place in Chicago, Illinois during September.
Despite our department’s relatively small footprint at VCU, we’re thrilled that about a dozen of our own residents, alumni and faculty members participated in this year’s conference, along with medical students with a special interest in radiation oncology. The department’s involvement includes the following:
