The first comprehensive Proton Therapy Clinical Education Program, jointly organized by Penn Medicine, Oncolink and IBA, includes e-learning sessions, open to all professional cancer treatment specialists, in an effort to improve patient referral practices and provide PT treatment to more patients around the world.

The Program consists of several e-leanring modules, supported by the web-based teaching experience of Penn Medicine’s Oncolink. Oncolink has as its mission to help cancer patients, families, health care professionals and the general public get accurate cancer-related information at no charge. “Our know-how in online learning will now be instrumental in developing a more efficient way of teaching professionals about proton therapy, which is an exciting step in our development”, underscores Maggie Hampshire, Director of Strategic Partnerships - OncoLink at University of Pennsylvania Health System.

The Program’s founding fathers are expecting to motivate 500 students per year to learn about proton therapy through the online learning modules.

This expertise is now available to IBA customers as well as to the medical community.” Professor James Metz, MD, Vice Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
