How proton therapy is different
Proton therapy is a noninvasive, targeted form of radiation therapy that can effectively treat many types of tumors, even those considered inoperable or too difficult to treat with traditional radiation therapy. Proton therapy’s precision enables our experts to deliver a maximum radiation dose that stops precisely at the tumor site with an accuracy of less than a half-millimeter, sparing much of the surrounding healthy tissue Click here to learn more! or visit MDProton.com

- Current licensure in the State of Maryland as a Registered Nurse is required.
- Three years of direct patient care experience as an RN is required. Previous experience in the conduction of clinical trials is highly desirable.
- Prior oncology experience a plus
