The 5th Christie Advanced Radiotherapy Summer School

A fantastic opportunity to learn and network at this interactive conference. The programme includes: tours of the proton beam therapy centre and MR-linac, a wide variety of plenary sessions workshops, debates and social events.

A unique part of this event is the evening social activities which are a great way of networking with colleagues within the radiotherapy community.

The conference is structured with a different Radiotherapy focus on each day covering SABR, Adaptive Radiotherapy, Novel & Specialised Radiotherapy and Proton Beam Therapy. Workshops and debates will be a key part of the week and delegates are given the opportunity for discussion and interaction within these.

Our Summer School is deliberately aimed at a wide audience: radiographers, medical physicists and clinicians as well as students and those from a more academic environment who wish to learn more about this subject.

This event is supported by the following companies. They have had no input into the agenda or selection of topics or speakers.
