The Osler Institute utilized state of the art equipment to record our Live 2016 comprehensive Radiation Oncology Biology and Physics Review Course and bring it to you! These video files are stored “in the cloud” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection. This review provides senior trainees and/or clinicians in practice a comprehensive update of clinical knowledge and helps prepare them for their Radiation Oncology exams (initial certification and MOC). Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care as well as new concepts, treatments, imaging applications and the molecular and cellular biology principles on which they are based. Both radiation biology and physics topics are covered.
