Biological Basis of Cancer Therapy: Medical Physics (FRCR 1) (revision)

The one day revision workshop is intended as a revision back up following on from the medical physics pre-recorded lectures and question and answer session, but this is not a pre-requisite. If you have undertaken physics teaching within your own hospital Trust, this workshop is an aid to revision if you are undertaking your FRCR part 1 examinations.

The workshop will be recorded and accessible via SharePoint to all registered candidates for revision purposes until 28 February 2023 in line with the Autumn 2022 and Spring 2023 RCR FRCR 1 examinations.


The subjects covered in these pre-recorded video lectures and recorded live question and answer session include:

  • Radiation
  • Linear accelerators
  • Radiation dose measurement
  • Radioactive isotopes
  • Radiation safety
  • Treatment planning
  • IMRT and stereotactic therapy
  • Brachytherapy
  • Verification
  • Teletherapy physics

This is a training course for clinical and medical oncology specialist registrars.
