ConclusionsBecause of poor and worsening recruitment, the study was stopped. The small number of participants in the trial (N = 65) precludes a conclusive answer to the research question given the large overlap in the confidence intervals in the proportions still alive at all time points. A widely held belief is that the 5-year absolute survival benefit with metastasectomy is about 35%: 40% after metastasectomy compar ed to
We read with interest a welcome critique on radiation oncology fellowships by Wallner et al.1 We agree with the authors that fellowships for advanced training should be offered for 2 reasons: to focus on opportunities to which residents may have limited exposure during residency—such as protons or brachytherapy—and to provide a path to subspecialty board certification (eg, in Hosp ice and Palliative Medicine). Clinical Informatics training fulfills both criteria and represents an increasingly important aspect of medical practice.
