American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO)

ASTRO is the largest radiation oncology society in the world, with more than 10,000 members who specialize in treating patients with radiation therapies. As the leading organization in radiation oncology, biology and physics, the Society is dedicated to improving patient care through education, clinical practice, advancement of science and advocacy.

ASTRO members, found at hospitals and cancer treatment centers around the globe, make up the radiation therapy treatment teams that are critical in the fight against cancer. These teams, which often include a nutritionist and a social worker, treat more than 1 million cancer patients each year.

Among the society's members are healthcare professionals from distinguished community practice centers as well as major academic research facilities. ASTRO provides these hard-working men and women with the continuing medical education, health policy analysis, patient information resources and advocacy that they need to succeed in today’s ever-changing healthcare delivery system.
