On-site Courses

Upcoming Course Dates

Liver, Pancreas and Upper GI Oligometastases Imaging and SBRT

Date: April 18-20, 2024
Course Leaders: Drs. Jelena Lukovic, MD, Ali Hosni, MD & Laura Dawson, MD
Guest Faculty: Dr. Cihan Gani, MD

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has been proven to be an effective tool in the management of both primary liver cancer (HCC) and metastatic liver, pancreas and other oligometastatic lesions. This course is a 2.5-day immersive educational program where experts will guide participants through the relevant clinical, pathologic, radiobiological, oncologic and technological principles that guide the assessment, decision-making and treatment of these patients using a combination of lectures, discussions and hands on experiences.

**The course is currently planned for an “in person” delivery. We will continue to monitor the situation and if necessary, may convert the course to a virtual or hybrid model.

 All radiation medicine professionals

Accelerator Technology Education Course

Date: This course will include 2 sections.
1. Virtual: October 9 & 16, 2024 (Wednesdays, 2 – 5 PM each day)
2. In-person: October 22-24, 2024 (Tuesday-Thursday)

Course Leaders: Bernard Norrlinger & Patricia Lindsay

The Accelerator Technology Education Course (ATec) is targeted at medical physics trainees, physics associates, accelerator services personnel, regulatory and standards body personnel interested in enhancing their understanding of linear accelerator technology. This immersive course will examine the theory, functionality, and basic service principles of linear accelerators in a multidisciplinary forum emphasizing the clinical relevance of all components of linac servicing – from beam tuning, troubleshooting imaging systems and safety issues related to accelerator servicing.

 Medical physics trainees, physics associates, accelerator services personnel, regulatory and standards body personnel

Course Fees:
$1,300 CAD

Please contact aep@uhn.ca to find out how to register.


International Radiation Therapy Undergraduate Training Academy (IRTUTA)

Date: May 27-31, 2024

This radiation therapist international experience is constructed to provide an interprofessional learning environment for undergraduate/newly qualified radiation therapists to acquire the knowledge, skills, and strategies needed to implement both fundamental and innovative radiotherapy principles into clinical practice.

Learning outcomes:
By the end of this program, participants should be able to:
– Demonstrate professional attitude appropriate to a newly qualified RTT in terms of effective communication with the wider multidisciplinary team in radiation therapy
– Critically evaluate their own scope of practice through the process of reflection which they will demonstrate by interactive discussions with clinical staff at PM.
– Effectively discuss current trends in radiation therapy including research opportunities in radiation therapist practice and related technical radiation therapy fields.

– Undergraduate radiation therapists who are interested in learning the radiation therapist scope of practice at PM.  Ideally, but not necessarily, they should be at the final year of the BSc course.
– Newly qualified radiation therapists who are interested in extending their scope of practice through this international experience program.

Course Fees:
Registration:     $500 CAD

The 2024 IRTUTA course is at full capacity and no longer accepting registrations. Please contact aep@uhn.ca to find out how to register for the 2025 course.

The course was extremely well organized, technologies facilities were excellent.

On-Site Course Descriptions

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

Our IGRT/SBRT course offerings continue to evolve in response to changing technology, applications, and evidence-based practice. We offer foundations as well as disease site-specific courses and continue to develop new courses each year, including: Liver SBRT, Lung SBRT, Head and Neck IM/IGRT, Paraspinal SBRT, CNS, SBRT for Oligometastases, and Sarcoma. These more focused courses still cover the fundamental principles of IGRT/SBRT, but do so within the unique context of their particular disease site.

Quality & Safety in Radiation Therapy (QSRT)

This course aims to expose learners to the overarching principles that comprise a program-wide approach to quality and safety and proposes a variety of tools and approaches that learners immediately experience to help advance their own practice along the quality continuum and provide insights to be brought back to their local program.

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

Over the past decade, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) has emerged as the standard of treatment for the delivery of the safest and most effective radiation therapy. It exploits technologies that minimize treatment side effects, while giving definitive radiation doses to diseased tissue. The course was developed to share a unique interprofessional approach to patient treatment and program development to give professionals an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in this area.

Accelerator Technology (ATec)

The ATec Education Course is developed to address the training needs of all staff responsible for the use and maintenance of medical accelerators, including medical physics trainees, physics associates, accelerator service personnel, and regulatory and standards body personnel. The emphasis of the course is on the practical aspects of maintaining Linacs, through a combination of lectures and hands-on labs.
