Practical and Theoretical Radiotherapy Physics Courses

Course overview 

This course provides practical and theoretical education for the support of a modern radiotherapy physics service within radiotherapy.

It is aimed primarily at recently qualified radiotherapy physicists, but should also be invaluable to post-graduate students, researchers, clinical oncologists, engineers, radiographers, manufacturers’ representatives and in fact, anyone needing to deepen or update their understanding of this rapidly evolving field.

The faculty is composed of physicists, clinicians and radiographers, many of whom are internationally renowned for their expertise. Workshops and demonstrations make full use of the facilities of the Radiotherapy and Physics Departments of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. The course content is reviewed annually to reflect changes in practice and technology.
