Sessions include introductions to Department of Radiation Oncology leaders and medical physics faculty, staff, and residents; a student-organized social event and medical physics networking event; overviews of graduate student services and resources at Penn; and a cross-cultural communication workshop to help students evoke global thinking and empathy in their communication styles.
