Alumni of Radiation

Have you ever wondered what your old friends and colleagues from Roswell Park are doing these days?

Perhaps you have a question have just forgotten the contact number? Or, maybe you are looking for a new physician, physicist, therapist, or dosimetrist to add to your department and would like to know who is graduating? Roswell Park's Department of Radiation Medicine would like to help in all of these areas. We want your affiliation with Roswell Park to extend long beyond your time here.

For this reason, the Roswell Park Alumni of Radiation Medicine (ARM) has been established. All former students, residents, faculty, as well as current and former staff, are all automatically members.

The Roswell Park Alumni of Radiation Medicine (ARM)

  • Meet annually for dinner during ASTRO week.
    • We will have a dinner for all alumni as well as associated friends and family during ASTRO along with current staff that attends ASTRO. It will be an informal get together to see how everyone is doing.
  • We will give access to all staff to the resident educational database. This is a great way to keep up with the latest topics.

Tell us what you would like to have us do for you! This is a work in progress.
