This conference provides invaluable information to faculty and residents from several educational institutions as well as professionals in private practice.
Presenters will typically present the results of IRB-approved studies conducted throughout the year that focus on monitoring and analyzing the outcomes of patients who have received radiotherapy at UF. There are also presentations by faculty that are broad overviews of certain disease systems, and what role radiotherapy can and should play in treatment of the condition.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe techniques and results of treatment of head and neck, pediatric cancers, lung cancer, and other tumors at the University of Florida Department of Radiation Oncology and the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute.
- Explain treatment methods to manage treatment side effects and reduce the occurrence of late complications of treatment.
- Recognize and interpret the success rates UF is experiencing with its radiotherapy techniques
We have a room block at the Best Western Gateway Grand under “UF Department of Radiation Oncology” with the following special rates:
King deluxe, $112
