Treatment Planning Training for Physicists, Dosimetrists, and Radiation Oncologists
ARC EDGE is a virtual training course for radiation oncology department professionals who want to improve their treatment planning skill sets. ARC has over 10 years experience of training individuals in the field and is now offering it in a convenient virtual format. ARC EDGE was designed with physicists in mind but is also excellent for dosimetrists and radiation oncologists who want to fine tune their treatment planning skills.
Why should physicists learn treatment planning?
First and foremost, an overworked planning team can lead to error. It is important for a physicist to be able to provide guidance to everyone in the planning team and to be able to plan in a dosimetrist's absence. ARC EDGE helps the physicists to be engaged and review the plans clinically, not just mechanically.
ARC has applied to CAMPEP for 40 MPCEC hours.
