The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco offers an annual medical student fellowship to fourth year medical students. The fellowship will support a medical student to spend 8 weeks in the Department of Radiation Oncology at UCSF. It carries a stipend of $500. The fellowship will be awarded annually at the discretion of the department.
During the 8 weeks experience, the student will spend half of his/her time in the clinic, time interviewing patients, physical examination, and learning about the natural history, and treatment techniques of cancer.
The student will spend the other half of his/her time participating in a small research project. The findings of that review will be presented to the staff and residents. In some cases a paper may result from this research.
Prerequisite for the fellowship is completion of at least three years of training at an ACGME approved United States medical school.
