The online course VMAT Treatment Planning proved very valuable for me.
As a physicist with very limited training in VMAT and static IMRT treatment planning the online course VMAT Treatment Planning proved very valuable for me. Through excellent guidance by the instructors and through input from other professionals around the world this course gave me the foundation for planning the vast majority of intensity-modulated plans given at the department. Furthermore, this course gave me a deepened understanding of the treatment planning system and the optimizer. This is very valuable both when you are planning plans yourself but also when you are checking and approving plans and you want to contribute with suggestions for plan improvement.
The hands-on part of the course provided us with excellent lectures from experts in various topics, ranging from QA to site-specific lectures to lectures about novel inventions in dose planning. Furthermore, it was also highly rewarding to get the opportunity to plan with various treatment planning systems as this gave me a deepened understanding of the treatment planning system that we are using.
I sincerely recommend this course both to skilled dose planners as well as professionals with limited or no knowledge of treatment planning.
