The Anatomy and Radiology Contouring Bootcamp for Radiation Therapists 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 was designed for radiation oncology residents. It started in 2013 and has trained over 200 residents from around the world over several years.

Radiation therapists also attended the in-person Bootcamp and found it to be a useful for understanding and contouring CT images. The resident ARC Bootcamp has now gone online, and we have adapted this edition specifically for radiation therapists.
