Clinical Competency Committee

Clinical Competency Committee

The goal of this Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) is to provide broad input to the Program Director about each resident’s performance in the Radiation Oncology Training Program. The CCC functions in an advisory role by meeting regularly to review all completed evaluations and providing a consensus-based recommendation to the Program Director as to the standing of each trainee in the program. The Committee will provide performance-based assessments that respect the personal privacy of the residents in the program. The Committee will function objectively and in a manner that promotes the highest levels of professionalism and confidentiality. The Program Director has final responsibility for each trainee’s evaluation and promotion decisions.

The CCC will have at least three members of the program faculty and meet every six months. Faculty members may include physicians and non-physicians from the Radiation Oncology program or required rotations in other specialties who teach and evaluate the residents. Meeting minutes will be taken as a brief summary written in a fair and balanced manner.

  1. Steve Braunstein, M.D., Faculty, Medical Residency Program Director, Department of Radiation Oncology
  2. Lauren Boreta, M.D., Assistant Professor, Associate Program Director, Department of Radiation Oncology
