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 prerequisite, and all candidates are welcome to register.

The Royal College have implemented a new FRCR 1 curriculum with all trainees expected to transfer to the new curriculum by August 2022.

The link to the recordings will be available to all registrants and accessible (via SharePoint) for revision purposes until 28 February 2022 in line with the Autumn/Spring 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.
