The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Program, affiliated with the University of Ottawa, is one of the largest cancer programs in Canada. We have an active fellowship program with multiple candidates in place at present. Our radiation treatment facilities include: three wide bore CT simulators with 4D capability, high dose rate and low dose rate Brachytherapy, eight Elekta Linear Accelerators with cone-beam CT capability and several VMAT capable units. There are two Tomotherapy units and one CyberKnife unit. The main planning system used is CMS Focal/XIO/Monaco, with separate dedicated systems for Tomotherapy and Cyberknife.
The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre is the sole provider of radiation oncology services in the Champlain LHIN (population 1.3 million) with over 5000 new patient consults annually. Radiation Oncology offers fellowships in Cyberknife and SBRT. All qualified candidates may apply; however, preference will be given to Canadian applicants who have successfully completed Royal College certification in Radiation Oncology.
