SCMPCR E-learning Program (ELP-06):
Clinical Medical Physics in Modern Radiotherapy
Learning objectives of the program
This is a course with a series of lectures aims to enhance knowledge of participants on safety standards and good practice in Radiotherapy, and to support improving their practical skills and competences in this field. The lectures will demonstrate the basic to advance theoretical and clinical aspects of modern radiotherapy practices among participants. The sessions will be highly intensive and interactive, and would expect participants to exhibit high degree of commitment and enthusiasm. The complete course will include 8 lectures by 9 speakers and a group discussion session with all the speakers.
The learning objectives of the e-learning program are:
- Developing theoretical knowledge and latest clinical experience in radiotherapy for cancer professionals from all over the world.
- Address the scientific basis of Reference and Relative Dosimetry in Radiotherapy.
- Explain the fundamentals of patient data acquisition for radiotherapy treatment preparation and planning.
- Demonstrate the clinical aspects of RadCalc – plan verification and quality management.
- Communicate the technical aspects of modern treatment planning, procedure and treatment delivery.
- Demonstrate a complete Guide on surface-guided radiation therapy.
- Discuss the modern techniques of radiation protection and safety aspects of medical devices.
- Disseminate clinical experience with RadCalc’s EPID in-vivo dosimetry.
By the end of this course participants should be able to learn:
- The clinical implementation of RedCalc End-to-end patient specific QA system.
- All the necessary imaging procedures before treatment planning and preparation to execute plans.
- Measurement of radiation dose by dosimetric tools or materials in a known radiation field.
- Understanding and management of radiobiological risks to human populations and the use of radiotherapy in the treatment of cancer.
- Major roles of medical physicists as well as the delivery of precise and accurate treatments by using advanced computer calculations in treatment plans.
The course is also suitable for
- Post Graduate Students of medical physics
- Medical Physicists early in their careers and eager to update their knowledge of physics and technical aspects of Radiotherapy
- Medical Physicist from Institutes / Hospitals
- Researchers and academicians from the medical physics faculty
- Dosimetrists and radiation technologists have a strong interest in the application of physics and technology in radiotherapy.
- D. students in radiation therapy or physics.

- The lectures will be in a familiar format, introducing a specific topic through a presentation, with chat box and polling option for interaction with the lecturers by using Zoom Video Conferencing System.
- After the lecture, there will be a Q & A session for 15 minutes.
- Study materials related to the lectures will be provided to the participants after each lecture.
- A group discussion session will be held with all the speakers and participants.
- A limited number of participants will be selected to successfully proceed with the course.
- At the end of the course, there will be an examination to judge the learning outcomes of the participants.
- The examination procedure will be strictly maintained by the organizing committee and the answer script will be evaluated by the speakers.
Evaluation and quality assurance
An evaluation of the program by the speakers and participants will be executed for further improvement of the e-learning program. It is an option for judging the program by the participants and the speakers and is used for continuous improvements in the successive programs. Regarding this SCMPCR will provide an evaluation form through a link to the participants and speakers at the end of the course.
