European Curricula

In 2011 ESTRO finalised the revision of the core curricula for radiation oncologists, medical physicists and RTTs  based on competency based education and training, teaching methodology and assessment. The main objective of the ESTRO core curricula is to  harmonise the training of the radiation oncology professionals in Europe, to facilitate mobility between EU member states, to reflect the rapid development of the professions and to secure the best evidence-based education across Europe.

It is recommended that the authorities in charge of the respective training programmes throughout Europe harmonise their own curricula according to this common framework.
