Radiation Medicine Program



As a fully affiliated teaching hospital of the University of Toronto, the Radiation Medicine Program (RMP) has many staff who are faculty members at the Department of Radiation Oncology, contributing to the training of undergraduate and graduate students, residents, fellows and visitors from around the world. Several of our staff hold important education leadership roles at the University of Toronto and contribute to the design and delivery of innovative education programs.

Providing education and professional development to health care professionals is vital to ensuring we meet the health care needs of Canadians in the future.

RMP fosters a culture of ongoing learning by developing education courses and programs on emerging best practices, technologies and models of care in radiation medicine. We highlight these innovations at our radiation oncology rounds and seminars, which are held by videoconference with radiation medicine programs across Ontario. These include:

RMP also offers an Accelerated Education Program (AEP) with the goal of expediting the mobilization and translation of knowledge into clinical practice. Our courses in Image-Guided Radiation TherapyQuality & Safety in Radiation TherapyAccelerator Technology and Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy offer unique opportunities to acquire the knowledge, skills and strategies to implement the course principles into radiotherapy practice. The AEP’s Personalized Learning Program (PLP) in Radiation Medicine provides a 6-12 month intensive observation experience, where participants will benefit from an individualized, goal-oriented curriculum based on true clinical cases, plus a variety of interactive simulation-based training.

RMP also contributes to the annual Target Insight and RTi3 Radiation Therapy conferences, as well as the Clinical and Experimental Radiobi​ology Course​, which are hosted by the University of Toronto Department of Radiation Oncology. These meetings and courses build competencies and communities of practice in the modern delivery of radiation therapy.

RMP Summer Seminar Series

The theme for the 2016 Summer Series is “Connections”.

We are fortunate to work in an environment characterized by expertise and excellence, and one in which collaboration and partnership are valued. This Summer Series will inspire new thinking on how to find synergy through novel connections. “If you want to go far, go together”; this statement is more relevant today than ever before. Connecting through social innovations, our community, government, industry, ourselves, exploring theoretical frameworks behind making connections, and training the next generation to build connections are some of the topics that our guest speakers will help bring into focus.
