This comprehensive review provides senior trainees and clinicians in practice a clinical knowledge update as well as helping them prepare for their Radiation Oncology exams (the initial certification and MOC). This 4-day virtual course includes didactic lectures and discussion of embedded review questions for each topic. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care as well as new concepts, treatments, imaging approaches, and the principles of radiobiology and physics that are relevant to clinical practice. The ABR written exam emphasizes 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 in this review
The webinar will be delivered using Zoom Cloud Meetings, allowing audio and visual interaction between you and the faculty. To take part in the webinar you need a computer with a good internet connection. With this online webinar course, you get the best of both worlds – the comfort and safety of your own home or office and the chance to learn from the Osler Faculty and your peers.
