The Christie Advanced Radiotherapy Summer School is an opportunity to learn about recent advances in radiotherapy from leading practitioners in the field.

 The Christie is one of Europe’s largest cancer hospitals treating in excess of 40,000 patients per annum and has Europe’s largest radiotherapy department, with 16 linacs. It was chosen by the National Health Service as one of the two UK proton therapy sites (NHS investment of £250m) and will start treating patients in 2018

The week will consist of both theory and practical workshop based sessions. Delegates will be able to participate in panel discussions and interactive quizzes to further consolidate their learning.
