ARRO honors 39 with Educator of the Year Award

In partnership with the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), the Association of Residents in Radiation Oncology (ARRO) has recognized 39 educators with the 2011 Educator of the Year Award.

ARRO sponsors the annual Educator of the Year Award to recognize outstanding teachers and mentors of radiation oncology residents. Residents from all radiation oncology programs were given the opportunity to select one faculty member from their program for the award. Outstanding educators included faculty from physics, biology and the clinic.

"Proper education and training are not only essential to the foundation of medicine, they also provide the keys to advancing the field. The award recipients have demonstrated their ability to challenge residents to progress beyond their potential," Eric Donnelly, MD, chairman of the ARRO Senior Executive Committee, said. "We are honored to recognize these individuals for their contributions to the future of radiation oncology."
