  1. For rad onc, there is more infrastructure needed to run a department (eg linear accelerators, medical physicists, electronic engineers to fix/maintain linacs etc), which limits the number of cancer centres that can operate and in turn, limits where rad oncs can practice. Compared to med onc where the infrastructure needs are way less, and there are more potential practice locations. So based on that, med onc job opportunities are greater than rad onc. However, I don’t any hard numbers to quote off the top of my head - perhaps someone else can provide. in terms of fellowships for rad onc , you will need at least one, regardless of academic vs community setting. Long gone are the days where you could come out of residency and work In the community without a fellowship (collateral effect of a tightened job market and the bar being raised for job applicants). There’s a high likelihood one will have to work somewhere as a staff in less desired location, before landing the staff job of one’s preference. Also, timing plays a role in hiring; ex if a department needs CNS rad onc, and one has interest in that area and plans to do a fellowship, then you could land a spot In a prime cancer centre. Plus, govt funding changes, potential for new cancer centres, retiring rad oncs also play a role etc. Multiple moving parts which are hard to predict. bottom line, if you really are interested in rad onc - do it, do what you need to do to land the job in your preferred location and go into the whole thing with your eyes wide open.
