As a membership association serving a niche profession, the Society for Radiation Oncology Administrators (SROA) provides an essential network of expertise and resources for radiation oncology administrators to improve and advance their management of organizational operations, finance, research and human resources.
The biggest benefit (of SROA) is the ability to pick up a phone and call a colleague to bounce an idea, challenge or problem off them and they will be keenly familiar with the topic. Although the programs have been very good, I believe the social aspects of SROA meetings are truly valuable to members who take advantage of them.

Since its creation, SROA has provided my colleagues and me with a much-needed group of like-minded peers. In a field as small as ours, SROA membership is invaluable.

SROA is so much more than our outstanding annual meeting. It offers a network to support our professional effectiveness wherever we work...

From our Annual Meeting to SROA Connect and essential resources like the Billing and Coding Special Edition, SROA provides the most current, relevant, and helpful information that impacts radiation oncology practices and departments on a daily basis—whether in a hospital, university, or freestanding environment.
SROA members enjoy a variety of benefits including:
With a passionate and committed network of radiation oncology administrators, SROA continues to build a legacy that empowers those working in the field, improves the quality of care for patients, and ensures the sustainability of radiation oncology practices.
