Program Coordinator

Clinical Area: Breast
Organization: Western University

The London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) is seeking an experienced and motivated individual for the role of a Clinical Research Fellow in Breast Oncology. The Breast Oncology Fellowship is a sub-specialty training program in the Division of Medical Oncology at the 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 breast disease site team consists of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, 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 breast oncology fellow but also pair the clinical training with opportunities in clinical and translational research – fields which we have additional expertise available through the program. The fellowship program has successfully offered this fellowship to trainees since 2011 and they have all gone on to contribute in a significant way to breast oncology throughout Canada.

This position will involve both clinical and research activities. The Clinical Research Fellow will gain broad experience of cancer management, particularly breast cancer, including experience with both outpatients and inpatients. During their training, the Clinical Research Fellow will participate in full-day breast medical oncology clinics and provide support for these patients on non-clinic days to prepare for a transition to independent practice. The Clinical Research Fellow will also participate in breast multidisciplinary sessions and is expected to conduct research in drug clinical trials, translational studies, or other clinical research including, but not limited to, health services research and meta-analyses. The Clinical Research Fellow will be expected to have an abstract presented at an international meeting and a publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
