Is your practice ready to start the fastest growing radiation oncology accreditation program in the United States? Review the APEx Readiness Checklist to see.
APEx takes place entirely in a web-based portal (APEx Portal). Beginning the program consists of an application, legal documents and payment.
A more detailed description of the process can be found in the APEx Registration and Application Instructions.
A radiation oncology practice (ROP) may be either a single facility or a multi-facility practice. A multi-facility practice is comprised of a main location and one or more satellites. To qualify as a multi-facility practice, where facilities are covered by the same accreditation application, all facilities must meet the following criteria:
*ASTRO will allow a multi-facility practice application to include a qualifying satellite facility located between 50 to 150 miles from the main location if the facility meets all other requirements for being a satellite. If approved, such satellite facilities would be subject to an additional fee of $3,000. Satellites outside of the 150-mile radius of the main facility may not be included in the same application but may apply as a single facility.
