Medical Physics Lecture Series: Radiation Oncology Technology, Quality, & Safety

Smilow Classroom, Mondays 3:30pm - 5:00pm

These lectures should be educational in design and include a review of relevant literature. These lectures do not require original research but should present current standard of practice with a detailed description of background information. Although most of the audience consists of professional clinical medical physicists and dosimetrists, the lectures should be prepared as educational material for a new Medical Physics Resident or a Medical Dosimetrist in training. Lectures should be about 60 minutes in duration with about 30 minutes of Q & A. All interested persons are welcome to attend.
