Advanced Radiation Oncology Fellowship
The department has an Advanced Radiation Oncology Fellowship which can be designed specifically to meet the needs/desires of the individual applicant.
All Fellows in this program spend three to four months per year in a one-on-one clinical rotation with the Department Chair, Lou Harrison. A recent awardee of the ASTRO Gold Medal, Dr. Harrison has written some of the primary textbooks in head and neck radiation oncology and brachytherapy. He treats a variety of head and neck and skin cancers, as well as sarcomas.
The remaining eight to nine months are completely customizable, based upon the interests of the applicant. However, note that due to visa requirements, all non-US citizens must devote the overwhelming amount of their time to clinical rotations/clinical patient care, across any disease site(s) of the Fellow’s choice. In that case, the Fellow would still have a small amount of time available to perform research projects. Those who do not require a visa may design a program of study that incorporates any proportion of research versus clinical endeavors, across any disease site(s). The Fellow may utilize research mentors from within and/or outside the Department of Radiation Oncology.
The Fellow is welcome to participate in all departmental and institutional didactics or other learning opportunities. Some funding is available to the Fellow to attend national meetings. The fellow has a carrel with a computer and phone in the Resident Room.
Current Fellow: Francis Asamoah, MD
Dr. Asamoah is a radiation oncologist at the National Centre for Radiotherapy in Accra, Ghana. He has been conducting ongoing research with Dr. Kosj Yamoah, analyzing the genetics of prostate cancer in West African men. He intends his time here to strengthen Moffitt’s ties with his home institution in this ongoing collaborative research endeavor.
