Proton therapy

After two successful years in a row, Penn Medicine’s department of Radiation Oncology (Philadelphia, PA) in partnership with Oncolink & IBA proudly presents the Third Annual Course on Proton Therapy: Past Lessons and Future Prospects, this year November 18-20 in Philadelphia. This unique opportunity presents medical professionals interested in proton therapy with an intensive three-day proton therapy immersion program at Penn Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. 

The course offers in-depth insights on the practical application of proton therapy for administrators, clinicians and medical physicists from cancer centers considering a venture into proton therapy. Speaking with Andrew Dike, Service Offering Manager at IBA, he highlighted why this unique course is so valuable today. “

There is a real surge of interest in proton therapy right now within the global radiation oncology community as we have seen and uptick in proton therapy centers being constructed worldwide. This course provides a dynamic forum to better understand what it really takes to make proton therapy a reality in your health system or cancer center. IBA is proud to be a part of such a special event that helps the field of proton therapy grow to what we believe eventually will be 20% or more of all radiation therapy treatments.”
