The Anatomy and Radiology Contouring Bootcamp includes:
- video lectures designed by anatomists, radiologists, surgeons, and radiation oncologists
- cadaveric anatomy lab videos led by anatomy graduate students
- contouring practice
- quizzes to make sure you are keeping up!
The original in-person ARC Bootcamp started in 2013 and has trained over 200 residents from around the world over several years. The course remains in high demand, often selling out within days.
Since the course fills up every year, we created this online version to help meet the demand for the course, and to give residents an option to participate in the course without the need for travel.
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.
Access to the Bootcamp is for one year from the date of registration.
