PTCOG Clinical & Technical Subcommittees

PTCOG Clinical Subcommittees can be proposed by Members of PTCOG by written application to the Executive Committee. The implementation of a Subcommittee has to be approved by the PTCOG Steering Committee. The Clinical Subcommittees below were authorized at the PTCOG 51-, PTCOG 53- and PTCOG 54- Steering Committee Meetings.

The main charge of the PTCOG Clinical Sub-Committees is to exchange knowledge and experience in treating patients with particle therapy for specific tumor indications. The Clinical Sub-Committees coordinate and manage clinical activities and propose new topics to be supported by PTCOG. The Committees organize dedicated meetings and symposia at the annual PTCOG Conferences in accordance with the PTCOG Executive Committee.

Each Clinical Subcommittee is chaired by 2-3 members of the PTCOG Association. Actually, the Subcommittees are headed by the following Chairpersons:
