The school is a “Gemelli ART” service. The mission is the education of physicians/medical physicists in interventional radiotherapy (brachytherapy) through a multidisciplinary approach with theoretical lessons and practical training.

All courses will be held in Rome and jointly developed and announced on both the BrachyAcademy website as well as the INTERACTS website:
Initiators of these programs are professor György Kovacs from the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein and professor Vincenzo Valentini from the Policlinico Universitario “Agostino Gemelli” of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.

INTERACTS aims to organize several programs per year, on various topics. Each course will last one full week from Monday till Friday, and will include a lot of hands-on sessions on dummies and treatment planning systems, and observations in the operating room. The groups will be small with a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 participants, to maximise learning opportunities.
At all courses, single participants are welcome, but it is encouraged to participate with multidisciplinary brachytherapy teams.
