Renseignements généraux

Radiation Oncology is a rewarding clinical specialty that includes both hands-on, multidisciplinary clinical care of cancer patients, as well as mastery over sophisticated radiation treatment technology. It combines patient-oriented clinical skills with knowledge of the fascinating, ever-changing field of cancer biology, anatomy-based three-dimensional imaging competence, and physics-based technical radiation treatment planning skills. It demands the development of competence in general medicine and palliative care, and specifically in evidenced-based clinical oncology, requires a commitment to excellent communication and collaboration skills, and provides a supportive, inspiring, multidisciplinary practice environment. It allows for a career focusing primarily on clinical practice, or for a highly academic career combining practice with education, research, and/or cancer control administration.

Hamilton cityscape
Hamilton is a Canadian port city on the western tip of Lake Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment, a huge, forested ridge known locally as “the mountain” and dotted with conservation areas and waterfalls, divides the city. The long-distance Bruce Trail runs along the escarpment. HMCS Haida, a naval warship on the city’s lakefront, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in the south, trace Canada’s military past.
