Once you have identified patients that may be candidates to receive proton therapy, you will have access to an expedited review process through your VPC partner status. Within 24 hours of initial contact, you will be able to discuss your patient’s case with a PI Referral Physician. We will also provide you with a consistent referral process by assigning to you your own PI evaluation team.
PI will administer both onsite and remote training to VPC referring physicians. The course will provide participants with:
(a) an understanding of the major differences between photon and proton comparative dose planning
(b) an interaction with proton treating physicians who have the clinical expertise to treat a diverse case mix, having already delivered care to patients with over 80 different diagnoses (including those with pediatric, non-small-cell lung, prostate, and gastrointestinal cancers in addition to base-of-skull, paranasal sinus, juxtaspinal cord, and head and neck tumors.)
