National Meetings and Conferences
Residents are supported to attend a number of national meetings and conferences with the acceptance of a research abstract. All residents are supported to attend ASTRO in their final year of residency.
Some meetings that are supported include:
- ASCO (and subsite symposia)
- American Radium Society
During the 2019 to 2020 academic year, we were proud to send two representatives to international conferences to present their work. This is a testament to the exceptional research taking place in our department, but it also highlights the collaborations among the medical education spectrum that we actively seek through a supportive work environment.
Dr. Tamara Nsouli presented “Treatment of ultracentral lung tumors with hypofractionated radiation therapy” at the World Lung Conference in Barcelona, Spain. Members of Dr. Nsouli’s team included Dr. Ryan S. Alden, (then a 4th year medical student at SUNY Upstate, now an incoming resident), Dr. William Ennis (former Chief Resident), Dr. Michael Mix (faculty member), and Dr. Jeffrey Bogart (Chair, Dept. of Radiation Oncology, Interim Director of SUNY Upstate Cancer Center).
Dr. Hsin Li joined members of his team to present “Heterogeneous vs. Homogeneous Radiation Dose Calculations of Twice Daily Fractionation in Small Cell Lung Carcinoma” at the 2019 Latin America Conference on Lung Cancer. Dr. Li worked with Ryan Thibodeau (then a 3rd year medical student at SUNY Upstate), Dr. A. Gajra (Dept. of Internal Medicine, SUNY Upstate), Dr. Sean Tanney (Medical Physics), and Dr. Jeffrey Bogart (Chair, Dept. of Radiation Oncology, Interim Director of SUNY Upstate Cancer Center).
