The London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) is seeking an experienced and motivated individual for the CIBC Lung Fellowship. The Fellowship is a sub-specialty training program in the Division of Medical Oncology at the London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP), part of the London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) in London, Ontario, Canada.
The LRCP serves as a regional referral Centre for tertiary oncology cancer for Southwestern Ontario with a catchment of over 1.5 million people. The Lung disease site team consists of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, interventional pulmologists, nurses and pharmacists with specific expertise in translational and clinical research and education.
The intent of the fellowship would be to provide fundamental clinical training to the Lung fellow but also pair the clinical training with opportunities in research, education, quality improvement and translational research – fields which we have additional expertise available through the program. The fellowship program has a successful history of producing highly productive trainees and they have gone on to contribute in a significant way to lung oncology throughout Canada.
During their training, the fellow will participate in a weekly full-day longitudinal Lung medical oncology clinic and provide support for these patients on non-clinic days to prepare a transition to independent practice. They will also participate in a weekly clinic, rotating with thoracic oncology staff. The Clinical Research Fellow will also be expected to conduct research in drug clinical trials, translational studies, and other clinical research including, but not limited to, meta-analyses and reviews. They will be expected to have an abstract presented at an international meeting and multiple publications in a peer-reviewed journals each year.
