Practical Radiation Oncology Program

Saturday, October 23 - Sunday, October 24


 

Returning for its fourth year, the Practical Radiation Oncology (PRO) Program continues to support the field with a two-day program specifically designed for the community practice radiation oncologist. This program will be held Saturday and Sunday to allow for physicians unable to leave their practice for a week to attend the premier scientific radiation oncology event. Program content is curated to keep in mind the ins and outs of a community practice and will include disease site reviews, interactive case-based discussions and a coding update. Registration includes both days of program, one live SA-CME course and a networking reception.
