Alumni Events

ASTRO Annual Meeting

We hope to reconnect with as many of our alumni as possible every Fall at the ASTRO Annual Meeting. We also co-host an alumni reception/dinner with the Vanderbilt Medical Alumni Association. We hope to see you in San Diego on Monday, October 2, 2023! Please contact for details.

Mock Oral Boards

Every Spring, we invite new alumni to join our current residents in practicing oral boards style practice sessions ("mock orals") led by our current faculty and prominent alumni. This provides invaluable test preparation as well as networking opportunities. The event is co-sponsored by our department and the Vanderbilt Medical Alumni Association.
