To accomplish this mission the ESTRO School of Radiotherapy and Oncology promotes a large range of education tools, in particular high-quality teaching courses. The courses are based on the European Core Curricula and cover the following aspects of Radiotherapy and Oncology:
Principles and practice of radiotherapy and oncology with radiation physics and technology, radiobiology and oncology imaging
Multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, fostering communication among cancer-related medical subspecialities and the exchange of a wide range of issues related to cancer, including biology, prevention, diagnosis, staging, treatment, adverse side effects, palliative care, ethical-legal aspects, management and psychosocial implications
The ESTRO School of Radiotherapy and Oncology addresses basic and continuing medical educational needs, by focussing both on evidence based clinical practice and basic, translational and clinical research. Its activities are designed to meet the needs of practising radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, radiation biologists, radiation physicists, radiation technologists, oncology nurses and oncology administrators, as well as oncologists working in related specialties.
