Jérôme Benoit

Member-at-Large



I am very pleased to be part of the ESVONC executive committee and to be able to work together with a great team with the only the goal to make ESVONC better and nicer for all of us. Not only the yearly meetings, but also our unique community.
After studying in France (Lyon and Maisons-Alfort) until 2006, I spent time in the USA the following year, visiting places and looking for a residency at a time when Europe was not offering much training in Oncology. I have been an onco-maniac since my very early years as a veterinary student, and literally fell in love with radio-oncology during my "american tour", because of its very various indications and its exact physics law, and specific biology.
I completed an ACVR residency from North Carolina State University and passed my certifying examination in radiation oncology in 2010. My activity has since been "limited" to oncology and radio-oncology for 5 years in the UK and now 2 years in France.I am European, and travelling is my favourite thing to do. Seeing new places, new faces, trying new food, making new friends is what I love doing as much as my schedule lets me. ESVONC is all about this. It is really unique in its diversity and I am really looking forward to meeting more of you!
