With a passion for equitable and high-quality radiotherapy, the GCR Resident Partners seek to foster a community of trainees globally through education, advocacy, and collaboration.
We know that radiation oncology is a cost-effective, innovative field that is fundamental to cancer treatment and has a curative or palliative role in nearly every type of cancer. We need to be trained in the political nature of our field and learn how to tackle policy issues and advocate for our patients, especially as trainees, for it is the field we will inherit.
The GCR Resident Partners will work to ensure the future of the radiotherapy workforce is growing, sustainable, and adaptable to the increased needs of cancer patients around the world.
