OCC – Radiation Oncology PPA Resources

Diplomates may chose to participate in a project offered by a national organization or society or they may chose to participate in a project on their own or as part of a group. All project data will need to be input into the provided project templates and submited to the AOBR office. In order to assist diplomates in researching improvement projects and the reasoning behind them, links have been provided below.

Diplomates should choose a project that presents a challenge or perceived gap in your practice.

Sponsored projects, including registries, are preferred for use in OCC by either individuals or groups. They have standardized formats for use by the diplomate and offer project specific templates to be followed throughout their completion.
