Bertram V.A. Low-Beer Memorial
Fellowship in Oncology

Open to 3rd and 4th Year Medical Students

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco, announces the availability of an annual fellowship in memory of Bertram V.A. Low-Beer, a former Chairman of the Department. The fellowship will support a medical student to spend at least 10 weeks in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco. It carries a stipend of $1,500. One fellowship will be awarded annually at the discretion of the department.

During the minimum of 10 weeks experience, the student will spend time interviewing patients, learning and participating in physical examination, and learning the natural history, psycho-social impact, and treatment techniques of cancer.

The student will be asked to participate in a small research project involving both library and clinical case reviews. The findings of that review will be presented to the staff and residents. In some cases a paper may result from this research.

Prerequisite for the fellowship is completion of at least two years of training at an approved United States medical school.

Please send a curriculum vitaé, a statement of interest, 3 letters of reference, a letter of reference from the Dean, medical school transcripts, and undergraduate transcripts to:
