About IES

  • The objective of the ASTRO International Education Subcommittee (IES) is to assist in the realization of the Society’s strategic plan with respect to international activities. IES not only plays the important role of educational exchange for radiation oncology professionals between USA and other countries, but also serves as the centralized resource to promote fellowship, research and clinical expertise on multiple levels with physicians, physicists, therapists and ancillary supportive representatives from other countries. 

    IES coordinates and identifies novel approaches to answer the increasing interest in global outreach from ASTRO members by serving as the international hub and coordination of its global health efforts and those of U.S. institutions, medical specialty societies, individuals and other international societies. Representatives from other major oncology societies including ESTRO, JASTRO, ASCO, CSTRO, CARO, TASTRO, SASCRO and RANZCR, as well as NCI/NIH, IAEA, RTOG, SCAROP, ADROP and ARRO, will play key roles in the IES efforts and activities.
