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 Video files are stored “in the cloud” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection, watch or listen to on your phone, computer, or tablet – your learning experience is almost like being at the live activity, but without travel costs and time away from your practice. Included with each online review is a downloadable copy of the syllabus that corresponds to the Video lectures for your use while viewing or as a free-standing study or clinical practice guide.
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 (the 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 are addressed. The review also covers the basic principles of radiobiology and physics that are relevant to clinical practice.
