The Anatomy and Radiology Contouring Bootcamp includes:
The original in-person ARC Bootcamp started in 2013 and trained over 200 residents from around the world over several years. The course was in high demand, often selling out within days.
We transitioned to an online course to meet the demand for spots, to be more environmentally friendly, and to substantially reduce the cost to residents.
The Bootcamp is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to learn normal anatomy and radiology correlates, even if you are not studying radiation oncology. For many years, the Bootcamp included CAMPEP Medical Physics PhD students who needed anatomy as part of their curriculum.
If you are from a low- or middle-income country, please see below for more registration options.
The full course will launch in mid-November. If you pre-register, you'll get an email in November when the lectures are ready for you. You'll also get an email in November with your EduCase password.
