This course is held every year. All of you who would like to obtain Swiss board certification as Specialist Radiation Oncologist in the near future should attend this course. You should have been in training for at least two years and have a good understanding of basic medical physics to benefit.

Successful completion of homework is mandatory to receive the certifcate.

This course is also open to already board certified radiation oncologists as a refresher (no home work!).

Please note that the SRO radiation protection course is intended for trainees in radiation oncology / radiation therapy only.
