Radiation Oncology Biology & Physics Online Review (CME VIDEOS)


The Osler Institute utilized state of the art equipment to record our Live 2016 comprehensive Radiation Oncology Biology and Physics Review Course and bring it to you! These Video/Audio files are stored “in the cloud” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection, watch or listen to on your phone, computer, or tablet – your learning experience is almost like being at the live activity, but without travel costs and time away from your practice. Included with each online review is a downloadable copy of the syllabus that corresponds to the Video/Audio lectures for your use while viewing or as a free-standing study or clinical practice guide. This review provides senior trainees/clinicians in practice a comprehensive update of clinical knowledge and helps prepare them for their exams. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care as well as new concepts, treatments, imaging applications, and the molecular and cellular biology principles on which they are based.
