Developing as an Early Career Physician

This course will present a multi-part session starting with two primarily didactic sessions on mentorship for the early career radiation oncologist and practice building. This will be followed by a panel discussion with several early-to-mid career radiation oncologists who have either made a transition in clinical practice or have considered making a transition and chose not to. We will cover a wide breadth of transitions (academic to non-academic, non-academic to academic, etc.) and a wide variety of topics (when to consider leaving, what factors to look for in a new position, how to discuss leaving with your current employer, how to evaluate the personal/professional impacts of a move, amongst others).

This activity is available from January 5, 2024, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on January 4, 2027. 

This activity was originally recorded at the 2023 ASTRO Annual Meeting.

Target Audience

The activity is designed to meet the interests of early career physicians.
