Radiation Oncology Trainee SMART Workshop

15 March 2019
Victoria, Australia
Venue - Melbourne Cricket Ground

The Radiation Oncology Trainee SMART Workshop is a full-day workshop directly designed to enhance trainee knowledge and skills in:

  • Statistical methods
  • Critical appraisal of the medical literature
  • Research methodology

The workshop will have interactive small group sessions, guided by Radiation Oncologists and Biostatisticians, to discuss actively recruiting and published cancer clinical trials. The SMART Workshop is an opportunity for trainees to meet with local researchers within TROG, and international researchers. Trainees are strongly encouraged to stay on for the TROG ASM, which will be an excellent opportunity to put into practice skills learnt at SMART Workshop, and develop networks with TROG researchers.

There are two SMART workshops that run on alternate years: Study Design Concepts (workshop A) and Evidence Appraisal Skills (workshop B). Trainees are encouraged to attend both workshops. This year’s SMART Workshop theme is ‘Evidence Appraisal Skills’.

Trainees attending the SMART workshop for the first time are entitled to 10 SMART points.
Trainees attending their second SMART workshop may claim a further 5 SMART points.
Trainees attending the TROG ASM following the workshop are entitled to an additional 2 SMART Points (i.e. either 12 points or 7 points).
