Joining the American Brachytherapy Society

The Benefits of Belonging to ABS!

Joining the ABS offers radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists and other health care providers access to colleagues for networking, research updates, and annual continuing education in the many subspecialty areas of brachytherapy (GYN, prostate, breast). Membership also includes:

  • Regular and Associate members will receive an electronic subscription Brachytherapy, the official journal of the ABS — NOW 6 issues per year
  • A bi-annual newsletter
  • Access to the ABS members-only site
  • Webinars
  • Discounts to all ABS educational events
  • Networking opportunities during our Virtual Outreach Events (VOE) with leading brachytherapy practitioners
  • CME and CAMPEP credits for educational events

NEW THIS YEAR! As part of ABS’s 2021 membership renewal campaign—and to fuel our “300 in 10” recruitment effort—ABS will be distributing a set of Virtual Reality Goggles with every renewal and/or join. Follow us on YouTube as we deliver a high-fidelity, immersive, viewer-directed experience that reproduces all of the audio-visual aspects of a procedure for trainees on a remote basis. Beyond the live experience, the tool further allows trainees to revisit and recreate the entire procedure, extending and augmenting the initial, one-on-one training.
