Physics Boot Camp

Our annual 1 week course in practical physics for the clinical radiation oncologist was held again this summer!

The course includes 5 sessions of a 45-60 minute classroom based lecture, followed by a hands-on “physics lab”.  The goal of Physics Boot Camp is to provide our residents and medical students with practical skills and foundational insights to jump into a clinical practice in Radiation Oncology – in essence a “How Things Work in Rad Onc” kick-starter course.

We’ve included an overview of the Boot Camp Labs with all of the proprietary slides removed.

Please contact for more information if you’re interested in virtually attending Physics Boot Camp next year!

Below is an example of the Physics Boot Camp Schedule.
