Following the success of the inaugural Christie Advanced Radiotherapy Summer School, we invite you to join us again and discover, discuss and debate recent advances in radiotherapy with leading practitioners.
The Christie is one of Europe’s largest cancer hospitals treating in excess of 40,000 patients per annum and has Europe’s largest radiotherapy department, with 16 linacs. It was chosen by the National Health Service as one of the two UK proton therapy sites (NHS investment of £250m) and will start treating patients in 2018.
Monday - Proton Beam Therapy
Tuesday - SABR/SRS
Wednesday - Adaptive Radiotherapy
Thursday - Adaptive Radiotherapy
The course is designed as an integrated programme but one day and two day attendance options are available
The course is deliberately aimed
at a wide audience:
radiographers, medical physicists
and clinicians as well as those
from a more academic
environment who wish to learn
more about this subject
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ (PARKING)
