Resources:
https://oncologymedicalphysics.com/From the looks of it, OMP looks like an amazing resource that I wish I had access to when I was training. OMP has a clean design with informative yet concise definitions.
https://hormesispodcast.com/A Medical Physics podcast (hosted by physicists) that was launched a few months back. An interesting snippet from their most recent episode discussed the future role for the radiologist with the onset of AI.
https://reddit.com/r/MedicalPhysics/A forum community of those in the Medical Physics field.
https://mydosimetryschool.com/An up-and-coming online dosimetry “school” that will offer courses in learning to create treatment plans (e.g., 3D, VMAT, SRS/SBRT) using TPSs from various vendors (e.g., Eclipse, Raystation, Pinnacle, etc.).
http://econtour.org/View CT scans for a variety of anatomical sites with OARS and PTVs contoured out. Click on the ‘Fundamentals’ tab to learn more about the language used in contouring.
http://headneckbrainspine.com/View brain and H&N CT and MRI scans with labeled anatomy. On their homepage, click on ‘Anatomy’ to see their available scans. During my training the scans I used most often were ‘Brain MRI’, ‘Skull Base CT’, and ‘Neck CT’.
https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Radiation_Oncology/Toxicity/QUANTECAn encompassing list of dose constraints for OARs seen on a daily basis. It also lists the rates of toxicity and the toxicity endpoint for exceeding the specified dose constraints.
DOSEPEDIA has no affiliation with any of the websites listed above.

Mini-FAQ
Can I download these videos and show my peers?Yes, as long as the intent is to share for educational purposes.
Will the tutorial videos eventually have audio?It has always been the goal to add audio, but I am not certain when it will happen.
Help, the text in the tutorial videos are too fast!Sorry as sometimes, what’s being shown on the screen moves too fast and so the captions follow suit. Three solutions include the following: downloading the ‘Video Speed Controller’ extension for the Chrome browser; playing the video on the Firefox browser and right clicking the video to decrease video speed; downloading the video and using a third party video player (e.g., VLC) to decrease video speed.
