The world’s largest society for radiation oncology professionals recently voted to confer upon Alan C. Hartford, MD, PhD, professor of medicine at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and Radiation Oncology Residency Program Director at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, the designation of American Society for Radiation Oncology Fellow (FASTRO). Hartford will receive his FASTRO designation at an awards ceremony in San Antonio on Tuesday, October 25, during ASTRO’s 64th Annual Meeting.
“Dr. Hartford joins an elite group of just 27 physicians and medical physicists who are recognized this year for their far-reaching contributions to the field of radiation oncology and their progress in advancing cancer research, education and patient care,” said Laura A. Dawson, MD, FASTRO, Chair of the ASTRO Board of Directors. “Congratulations to Dr. Hartford for achieving the designation of ASTRO Fellow.”
Awarded annually since 2006, the ASTRO Fellows program recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to radiation oncology through research, education, patient care and/or service to the field. Since its inception, the FASTRO designation has been awarded to just 421 of ASTRO’s 10,000 members worldwide.
