                 Evolutionary Algorithm for Genetic Programming
                 (GP-GOMEA) has been shown to find much smaller
                 solutions of equally high quality compared to other
                 state-of-the-art GP approaches. This is an interesting
                 aspect as small solutions better enable human
                 interpretation. In this paper, an adaptation of
                 GP-GOMEA to tackle real-world symbolic regression is
                 proposed, in order to find small yet accurate
                 mathematical expressions, and with an application to a
                 problem of clinical interest. For radiotherapy dose
                 reconstruction, a model is sought that captures
                 anatomical patient similarity. This problem is
                 particularly interesting because while features are
                 patient-specific, the variable to regress is a
                 distance, and is defined over patient pairs. We show
                 that on benchmark problems as well as on the
                 application, GP-GOMEA outperforms variants of standard
                 GP. To find even more accurate models, we further
                 consider an evolutionary meta learning approach, where
                 GP-GOMEA is used to construct small, yet effective
                 features for a different machine learning algorithm.
                 Experimental results show how this approach
                 significantly improves the performance of linear
                 regression, support vector machines, and random forest,
