Dr. Joanne Alfieri
The charming and beautiful city of Montreal, with its rich history and culture, and its state-of-the-art cancer centres, is the home of the McGill Radiation Oncology Program. We aim to train future leaders in the specialty with special skills in quality improvement, patient safety, and the stewardship of healthcare resources. Our program is the perfect size – large enough for a vast array of clinical volume and expertise, but small enough for one-on-one learning with true collaborative goal setting for achieving individualized learning objectives.
The program is constantly innovating with unique teaching and learning approaches, including:
Multidisciplinary Oncology Resident Education (MORE) sessions which bring together trainees in surgical oncology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology every two weeks to discuss multidisciplinary management by site.
Longitudinal Quality Improvement (QI) Curriculum where residents have mentor support to lead their own QI team and project to completion.
