Subspecialty Working Parties

The primary role of the subspecialty working parties is to advise the TROG Scientific Committee (TSC) on current trials and projects in the subspecialty research portfolio, on any gaps in research activities, on new research concepts including the scientific merit of the proposal and on the research priorities to be adopted by TROG. Please see the Working Party Terms of Reference for more detailed information.

The Subspecialty Working Parties will represent radiation oncology, medical physics, radiation therapy, statistics, consumers and other appropriate disciplines (e.g. medical oncology, allied health).

If you are interested in joining a working party please complete an Expression of Interest form.
