NRG Oncology is seeking applicants interested in leading the Veterans Affairs/Military Treatment Facility (VA/MTF) Subcommittee. This recently formed subcommittee is part of the NRG Oncology Membership Committee, and seeks to support the success of the VA and MTF facilities in their participation within NRG Oncology and across both the National Clinical Trials Network and the National Community Oncology Research Program.
The VA/MTF Subcommittee seeks to be a forum for working through barriers to participation specific to these membership communities, much like the long-standing NRG International Members and Canadian Members Subcommittees. Such interest groups allow NRG to work with and support the engagement of a diverse and engaged members through understanding and addressing the sometimes unique regulatory, administrative, or other barriers to accrual specific to these communities.
The newly forming VA/MTF Subcommittee brings together multiple efforts across NRG, with the first meeting having occurred during the Summer 2021 Virtual NRG Meeting.
Interested applicants from the VA or MTF community are encouraged to apply by submitting a letter of interest and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 17, 2021.Applicants are not required to have a full time VA appointment, but should have a substantive level of effort devoted to VA responsibilities. The letter of interest should describe participation in NRG Oncology to date and briefly describe the applicant’s thoughts on VA/MTF engagement in NRG Oncology. The selected applicant will be provided funding to attend the twice-annual NRG Oncology meetings.
The Subcommittee Chair is expected to convene VA/MTF meetings on a regular schedule and report out on those efforts to the NRG Membership Committee.
