Education Day

While the Congress is a valuable opportunity for those with an interest in paediatric oncology and radiation oncology to catch up, learn about research directions and hear clinical trials updates, for others it will be the first time they have had the chance to learn more about this specialised area. The Education Day provides background teaching and learning in an informal but structured inter-disciplinary way from international and local experts, setting the scene for the Congress itself. Trainees will find the Day especially useful and especially relevant to RANZCR training. The Education Day of PROS is valued by radiation oncologists at all levels of paediatric and adolescent / young adult experience – you are never too old to learn something new or contribute to the learning of others!
