Oncology Registrars' Forum Trainer Award


Introduced in 2011, the ORF Trainer Award is presented annually to a UK-based clinical oncologist who has made an outstanding contribution to clinical oncology teaching and training at a local, regional or national level. 


Many consultant oncologists dedicate their time and effort to deliver high-quality teaching and training of oncology to trainees. The purpose of this award is to identify and acknowledge those individuals whose hard work is often unrecognised. The award will be acknowledged in the ORF section of the RCR Newsletter and on the RCR website. All nominated trainers will receive a letter of commendation from the ORF, and the winner will be presented with an engraved trophy.


UK-based consultant clinical oncologists.
