Our Stanford Radiation Oncology #StandWithUkraine lecture series is completed! Overall, 103 Ukrainian radiation oncologists, medical physicists and RTTs joined the lectures. Peak attendance per lecture was 120 attendees including Stanford faculty and staff. All Ukrainian cancer centers had participants in the lecture series. Lviv Regional Cancer Center had the most participants – 11 radiation oncologists and medical physicists!
Here are the results of the evaluation survey for the Stanford Radiation Oncology Clinical Lecture Series in Radiation Oncology #StandWithUkraine:
Out of 103 attendees from Ukraine, 36 responded to the survey: 66% radiation oncologists, 26% medical physicists, 9% other specialties
Most respondents were extremely satisfied with the course (83%)
91% of respondents would use the knowledge acquired during the course in their clinical practice in Ukraine
% are interested in new courses in the future!
Around 40% did not find English as an obstacle in learning! Great progress!
