CARO-CROF Pamela Catton Summer Studentship Award

The 2018 CARO-CROF Pamela Catton Summer Studentship Award Call for Applications is now OPEN!

We’re committed to supporting professional education in radiation medicine and to helping build Radiation Oncology capacity in the healthcare system. Towards this end, CARO has partnered with the Canadian Radiation Oncology Foundation to offer summer studentships that will provide Canadian medical students with Radiation Oncology clinical experience, research opportunities, mentoring, and career counselling.

The studentships, which take place in participating cancer programs across Canada, are open to any student in a Canadian medical school and may be held after completion of the first medical year and before graduation. There will be a competition for funded slots, with academic achievement as the major factor in the awarding of the studentship. CARO’s education committee adjudicates the process for student selection and residency allocation.


CROF is excited to announce the Call for Applications for the 6th annual CARO-CROF Pamela Catton Summer Studentships Program. This program provides an outstanding clinical experience in Radiation Oncology for Canadian medical students to assist them in future career selection, mentorship and career counseling experience.

Based on the highly successful Ivan Smith Summer Studentship in Ontario, this program offers a six week summer clinical elective for Canadian medical students between their first & second or second & third year, in placements across Canada.

99% of all students who have completed the CARO-CROF Pamela Catton Summer Studentship Program would recommend it to others!

It is our hope to continue to expand this program with CARO members’ support. This worthy project is one of the examples of how your support of CROF strengthens Canadian radiation oncology.
