Map and Directions

The purpose of this four-day course is to provide a comprehensive review of radiobiology and physics for senior radiation oncology residents who are taking the board exam for the first time and radiation oncologists already in practice who are prepraring for their re-certification exams. Dosimetrist will also benefit and are encouraged to attend. The instructors for this course include a combination of invited nationally recognized faculty and our own top-ranked faculty in the departments of radiobiology and physics.
This premier national board-review course will provide participants with an overview of current concepts in radiation biology, physics and dosimetry and will be conducted in an interactive workshop format with lectures and questions and answers sessions. 

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to describe and discuss:
     - Current molecular and cellular biology and its impact on modern radiobiology
     - Biological basis of current and upcoming treatment modalites
     - Physical principles of radiation therapy, including planning and setup for
       external beam therapy, brachytherapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery.
     - Imaging application to radiation therapy, such as in treatment simulation and
       target definitions
     - Methods of measurement of radiation quantity and quality, and the system
       of dose calculation
     - Principles of radiation safety and radiation protection

Course Directors: Zeljko Vujaskovic, M.D., Ph.D. and Warren D’Souza, Ph.D., M.B.A.
