Penn Medicine has, once again, transitioned its annual Proton Therapy Course to a virtual event to ensure the safety of its attendees and the community. Nonetheless, we believe it is vital to offer our members and the community an opportunity to learn, connect, stay engaged and share important information and resources.
A virtual event is hosted entirely over the Internet. It will allow attendees to access live and hear presentations from their computers. Attendees participate through a website designed specifically for the virtual Proton Therapy Course. The site is where you will watch presentations and participate with questions and comments in real time.
To participate, you need an Internet connection and web browser. For the best viewing experience, we recommend that you join the conference using a supported internet browser, which includes Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. If you have a VPN, it is best NOT to use it while attending a digital event as it could cause delays, freezing and disconnects.
Try refreshing the page. If you are still having issues, try closing all windows and logging back in. Live technical support is available throughout the live event day to assist with troubleshooting.
Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. We will send you updates and login information before we go live on December 2, 2021 for our Welcome Session. Please check your spam/junk mail for your confirmation email. If you do not receive it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may find pricing information listed on the home page of this site. Early bird registration ends November 1, 2021!
We are offering a networking lounge and encourage you to meet peers and connect with others at the meeting to develop professional relationships with leaders and experts in this field.
Some portions of the reception will be live, while others will be simulive. This means our presenters have thoughtfully recorded the presentations to ensure the highest quality experience.
The course begins on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 8:00am EST. Registered attendees can access the sessions anytime from December 3, 2021 until December 20, 2021. However, on the live day, registered attendees have the opportunity to ask questions to the speaker and connect with peers online in real time.
All sessions will be found under the Sessions tab. To view them, simply click the title of the session you wish to view at its respective time and then click attend.
