About the Course

The purpose of this two-day interactive course is to simulate a 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 instructors for this course include a combination of invited nationally recognized faculty and our own top-ranked faculty in the Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Maryland School of Medicine.

All attendees and speakers are invited to a tour of MPTC and a complimentary reception that will feature iconic Maryland cuisine. In addition, we provide breakfast and lunch each day of the course.

*Faculty/guest examiners of this course are not current oral board examiners. Examiners for this course do not have a role in the development or administration of examinations. Course material presented at the event will not appear on any oral board examination.
