Special Courses & Events

At the UM SOM Department of Radiation Oncology, we are very proud of our tradition of educational events. We host several events throughout the year, beginning with our Radiation Oncology Symposium in January. In the spring, we will host two additional events: our first ever Mock Orals in Radiation Onclogy and the 15th Annual Radiobiology Radiobiology & Physics Review Course. The target audiences include radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents and medical physics residents preparing for certification.

The Radiation Oncology Symposium – Best of 2017

Thursday, January 11, 2018

The Radiation Oncology Symposium - Best of 2017 will provide the attendees with the new changes in technology and treatment modalities that have occurred in the past year.

Radiation Oncology Symposium - Best of 2017

Introducing... the First Annual Mock Orals in Radiation Oncology

Saturday-Sunday, March 10-11, 2018

This interactive course will simulate the ABR’s radiation oncology oral board examination through series of one-on-one timed interviews reviewing high yield cases with individual feedback (day one) and a didactic half-day session (day two) with disease-site experts providing an overview with practical tips. The course is dedicated to aid young practicing radiation oncologists prepare for the oral board examination.

The 15th Annual Radiobiology & Physics Review Course

Thursday-Saturday, April 19-21, 2018

The purpose of this three day course is to provide a comprehensive review of radiobiology and physics for senior radiation oncology residents and medical physics residents who are taking the board exam for the first time as well as radiation oncologists already in practice who attend the review course to prepare for re-certification examinations.  The instructors for this course include a combination of invited nationally recognized faculty and our own top-ranked faculty in the departments of radiobiology and physics.

We are excited for the opportunity to share these signature events with you.
