The Osler Institute utilized state of the art equipment to record our Live May 2018 comprehensive Radiation Oncology Review Course and bring it to you!  These audio 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, and imaging approaches. The written exams emphasize anatomy, epidemiology, etiological agents, natural history, pathology, tumor markers, initial clinical evaluation, staging, routes of spread, selection of treatment modality and techniques, surgical and chemotherapy adjuvant treatments, follow-up treatment and evaluation, patterns of failure, and normal tissue effects including complications; all of these areas were addressed in the recorded course. The review also covers the basic principles of radiobiology and physics that are relevant to clinical practice.  Included with each Online review is an electronic downloadable copy of the syllabus that corresponds to the Audio lectures.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course each participant should be able to perform the following tasks for all cancers of the eleven ABR defined component areas:

  • Describe the anatomy, epidemiology/etiologic agents, and natural history
  • Explain the pathology and use of tumor markers
  • Describe the initial clinical evaluation, staging, and routes of disease spread (local and distant)
  • Summarize potential treatment modalities including optimum beam and radiation sources, volume and dose calculations, as well as fractionation
  • Discuss follow-up treatment and evaluation, patterns of failure, and normal tissue effects
  • Discuss the use of multimodality therapies including sequence, interactions, and specific agents
