Travel Grants for Radiation Oncology Residents and Nurses From the American Society for Radiation Oncology for Advocacy Day
May 5 - 6, 2014 Washington, DC
Advocacy Day provides the opportunity for radiation oncologists to learn about important policy issues facing the field of radiation oncology and the overall health care system and apply that knowledge to their practice. Participants will learn from experienced policymakers and legislative experts about issues including, patient safety, Medicare physician payments, physician self-referral, cancer research and new health care policies on the horizon. Radiation oncologists will come away from this meeting with an understanding of federal legislative issues and how they affect the field of radiation oncology.
Travel Grants are available to radiation oncology residents and nurses.
We recognize that radiation oncology residents and nurses are a crucial component of radiation oncology but face financial constraints different than that of other attendees. To balance ASTRO’s budgetary constraints with our desire to maintain active resident and nurse participation in Advocacy Day, ASTRO has created a travel grant to help defray travel costs. Please note that due to the decrease in available registration slots in 2014, fewer travel grants are available.
Write a 1-page letter explaining why attending Advocacy Day is important to advancing your career and radiation oncology. In your letter, list your expected travel costs.
Submit an accompanying letter from your program director recommending your attendance.*
Letters should be submitted together to Katie Morehead before the close of business on March 14. Please note that both letters must be received by the deadline for your application to be considered.
ASTRO staff and government relations council chairmen will review applicant letters and recommendations from program directors. For those applicants who are approved, ASTRO will cover the hotel costs for two nights during Advocacy Day and up to $400 in travel costs. Funds are limited and applicants are encouraged to explore economical means of transport (i.e. driving, bus or train) so that more applicants may be supported. The travel grant does not include parking, cabs, meals or any other extra travel costs. Please be sure to purchase your ticket at least three weeks prior to Advocacy Day to avoid price increases.
Due to their leadership positions, voting members of the ARRO Executive Committee travel costs are covered and are exempt from the application process.
Residents who want to attend Advocacy Day but do not need travel support are still recommended to inform their program director of their plans to participate, particularly if they are not taking vacation time.
*Nurses do not need to submit a letter from their program/department director.
