The ACRO PROTON THERAPY SYMPOSIUM – Miami will provide proton therapy teams (physicians, physicists, dosimetrists) the most current clinical information that can be taken back to the clinic and used immediately to improve patient care.

Explore future directions in proton therapy at this Second Annual clinical continuing medical education event. 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 and peers and exhibitors to expand the clinical knowledge base of proton therapy for cancer treatment. The symposium includes a tour and reception at the Miami Cancer Institute Proton Treatment Center.
