ESTRO “Physics for Modern Radiotherapy” course – 3 online positions for Ukrainian medical physicists

ESTRO is kindly offering free registration for 3 junior medical physicists from Ukraine for the online “Physics for Modern Radiotherapy” course.

Course curriculum:

WHO is this course for?
For Ukraine, the target group is an early career physicist (approximately first five years after training) in the radiation oncology physics profession with an intermediate (B2) to proficient (C2) English proficiency levels.

This online course consists of 4.5 days full of lectures and case discussion sessions.

The lectures aim to:

  1. Provide knowledge and understanding of physics relevant to modern clinical radiotherapy
  2. Provide comprehensive overviews of imaging and volume concepts in radiotherapy
  3. Discuss modern dose delivery techniques, such as IMRT, rotational therapy (VMAT, helical tomotherapy), S(B)RT, IGRT, adaptive therapy (ART), particle therapy and brachytherapy
  4. Discuss safety issues in lectures on commissioning and QA/QC, radiation protection, in vivo dosimetry and induction of secondary tumors.

Complimentary to the lectures, this course has clinical case discussions as an important component. The case discussions aim at teaching physics by practical application in treatment planning.
