In 2011, thanks to a generous financial donation from Mr Arthur Kay, the RCR established the RCR–Kay Visiting Fellowships.
The Fellowships provide opportunities for 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 visits, anticipated to be up to (but no longer than) two weeks, will contribute towards achieving the highest possible standard for a modern, world-class radiotherapy service in the UK. A key component of this is clearly to develop the knowledge and expertise of Clinical Oncologists.
Up to £2,000 per visit.
The Fellowships are open to consultant clinical oncologists who are Fellows of the RCR in good standing, resident in the United Kingdom and in active clinical NHS practice at the time of the application and the award/visit. Please note that those eligible for the Visiting Fellowships may be awarded only one Fellowship under this scheme.
A list of previous successful applicants is available.
All enquiries should be submitted to the Professional Support and Standards Administrator.
