Post date: Jan 21, 2013 12:30:07 PM

Update: Programme added.

A hands-on course "Quality Assurance in Advanced Radiation Therapy (QAART)" will be given by Inholland University of Applied Sciences in April 2013. This hands-on course is designed for medical physicists (in training), medical engineers and specialised radiation therapy technologists (RTTs), working in RT departments. Physicists, engineers or RTTs working for companies that develop RT products may also benefit from this course. The course will take place from Tuesday 09-APR-2013 to Saturday 13-APR-2013 and will be given in English.

This hands-on course is directed primarily to professionals with a physics-technical background and assumes some prior theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of quality assurance. The most important parts of this course are the practical exercises in using various types of QA equipment. These sessions will be supported by four companies and expert users from RT departments.

The course is meant as an addition to existing courses and focuses on the practical aspects of QA of advanced radiotherapy techniques. Detailed information on the course can be found in the attached flyer. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us. The registration for the course is open up to 15-MAR-2013.
