Great News: CE Credits for Submitting a Plan!

Participants can earn 2 CE credits through the MDCB for participating in this study, provided (1) a plan is submitted to the study, (2) the plan meets all minimally-required objectives for all scored metrics, and (3) the composite plan score is 75% or more of the total points, meaning 112.5 points or higher. A list of submissions meeting these basic criteria will be submitted to the MDCB and cross-referenced with its members.

You can earn these two CE credits whether you attend the meeting or not. For those who attend, study participation credits will be earned in addition to those given for attending the results lecture in person.

Planning and Presentation Team

The plan metrics and objectives have been designed by a team of physicians, physicists, and dosimetrists based at Radiological Technologies University (RTU) and Advanced Radiotherapy Consulting (ARC).

The results will be presented by James Wheeler, M.D., Brent Murphy, M.S., and Bruce Phillips, C.M.D. at the AAMD annual meeting in Austin, TX, in June 2018.
