Hi folks, Does anyone have good recommendations for favorite electives during fellowship? My program has slots for three 2-week rotations -- it is a large tertiary center with a lot of services (i.e. plenty of options).

I'm thinking addictions, pain, .... spiritual? psych?

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.
