In 2011, the RCR established the RCR–Kay Visiting Fellowships to provide opportunities for a limited number of consultant clinical oncologists to visit major cancer Centres overseas or, if appropriate, in the UK. The purpose of the visits is to enable successful applicants to achieve a stepwise change in world-class radiotherapy techniques that would translate into service development within their own Department, with clear patient benefits in terms of improved outcomes.
The RCR-Kay Visiting Fellowships have been made possible by a generous financial donation from Mr Arthur Kay, for which the RCR would like to express its grateful thanks.
The submission deadline for the 2012 scheme has now passed. The 2013 scheme will be advertised in May/June 2013.
