RSS Residents Association

About the RSS Residents Association

The Radiosurgery Society® Residents Association (RSSRA) and Residents Executive Committee (REC) were formed in May 2016 to support clinical and medical physics residents and trainees interested in pursuing a career in stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). The RSSRA provides members opportunities to increase their SRS/SBRT exposure and knowledge while actively participating in the creation and development of scientific and educational programs. Our mission is to optimize the educational experience of residents and trainees in order to develop future leaders in SRS/SBRT.

RSSRA members have access to a wide variety of programs, which provide education, training, networking and mentorship in the fields of SRS/SBRT, while maximizing opportunities for individual and group participation. RSSRA holds monthly meetings to foster connection and collaboration and to drive forward its projects and programs.

RSSRA members are encouraged to take on leadership roles within REC and the RSSRA sub-committees to strengthen their leadership skills and help actively define, develop and oversee scientific and educational offerings.

"The RSS Residents Committee is a group of collegial experts focused on the goal of enhancing mentorship and educational experiences of those training in the field of radiosurgery. The committee members are actively engaged in a variety of activities, such as webinars, didactic and 'hands-on' training, and novel research opportunities facilitated by the RSSearch Patient Registry."

Who We Are

The RSSRA consists of all residents and trainees who are active members of the RSS. The Residents Executive Committee (REC) is elected by the RSSRA and consists of a chair, vice-chair, secretary and two executive members.

The RSSRA also benefits from the guidance and insights of distinguished faculty advisors who have years of experience in their specialty and are actively involved in residency programs at their own institutions. The RSSRA is supported by the RSS administrative staff.
