About the Position

Are you passionate about health equity? Do you want to make a tangible impact in increasing the accessibility of medical education & training? Are you looking for a job that will build your leadership abilities as you develop a foundational understanding of the global health landscape?

 

If so, the Rayos Contra Cancer Program Manager position may be the perfect fit for you!

Rayos Contra Cancer (RCC) was founded in 2018 with the mission to create sustainable access to timely, high-quality, and affordable radiation treatment for cancer patients in resource-limited settings globally. One of the biggest limitations in cancer care in low- and middle-income countries is a lack of opportunities for affordable advanced radiotherapy training. RCC addresses this education gap by providing free, virtual radiotherapy trainings to clinics and medical professionals around the world. These curriculums are taught by world-class volunteer educators from both the U.S. and abroad and are coordinated by the RCC team.

The Rayos Contra Cancer Program Manager is an invaluable member of the RCC team. This position is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience working on global health projects and improving access to high-quality cancer treatment in resource-limited settings. As the Program Manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of RCC to continue running our international radiation therapy curriculums on topics that help cancer clinicians use existing advanced technology to deliver life-saving treatments at their centers. This will involve coordinating with expert volunteer medical professionals as well as communicating course information with participants in low- and middle-income countries all over the world. You will also have ample support from other RCC team members and volunteers who will help you execute high-quality training programs.
