PTCOG North America - Sixth Annual Conference: New Frontiers in Particle Therapy
PTCOG-NA will explore New Frontiers in Particle Therapy at its Sixth Annual Conference in Miami. The 2019 conference brings together radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists and radiation therapists to advance their expertise on the latest clinical applications, outcomes and physics and biology experiences with particle therapy. Internationally renowned experts will discuss best-practice proton therapy approaches and the latest evidence-based proton treatment planning for specific diseases and disease sites.
The setting and format allow physicians, physicists and dosimetrists to learn in a relaxed environment with plenty of opportunity for interaction with faculty, peers, poster presenters and exhibitors to expand the clinical knowledge base of proton therapy for cancer treatment. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the state-of-the-art Miami Cancer Institute Proton Therapy Center, and a Miami City Night evening option will be provided.
Days one and two (Monday and Tuesday) will consist of morning and afternoon talks with lunches and breaks at the new Hilton Miami Dadeland, adjacent to Miami Cancer Institute. Day three (Wednesday) will be similar, with midday adjournment. The schedule provides attendees with the opportunity to spend a weekend enjoying and exploring Greater Miami and the Beaches prior to the PTCOG-NA opening session. See the Venue section for details about nearby attractions.
