The AROI attaches a very high importance to the academic & research activities in Radiation Oncology with its related disciplines. To improve the overall standards of post-graduate teaching, clinical practice and adequate growth of this discipline the Indian College of Radiation Oncologists was established as a dedicated and integral part of the Association in 1992.
The first workshop under the banner of ICRO was conducted at Bangalore in April, 1997 on "Precision Radiotherapy" and since then various workshop under ICRO have been conducted in different parts of the country.
A CME programme is conducted by the ICRO along with the National Conference of the AROI regularly since 1997. Various topics of recent advances in Radiotherapy along with important topics are discussed for the benefit of postgraduate students and young Radiotherapists.
In order to encourage the practice of Palliative Care, ICRO along with GCCI provides a grant to the various State Chapters to teach palliative care during their Annual State Chapter Conference
“ AERB’s e-Licensing of Radiation Applications (e-LORA) system becomes operational ”
There is good news for Radiotherapy institutions, radiation professionals (Radiation Oncologists, Medical Physicists, Radiological Safety Officers, Radiotherapy Technologists and Service Engineers) and Suppliers of Radiotherapy Equipments in India. Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) has developed and commissioned its computerized e-Governance project "e-Licensing of Radiation Applications (e-LORA)” for Radiotherapy facilities. This will facilitate the online submission of applications, issuance of all regulatory clearances and registration of radiotherapy institutions/radiation professionals. The system is being rolled out in a phased manner by AERB and several institutes have already gone online through e-LORA.All Radiotherapy facilities are expected to be switched to online mode by December 01, 2013. For this purpose, all existing radiotherapy centers are required to submit the details regarding the following to AERB for pre-registration in e-LORA.

The format for details (as an excel file) can be downloaded from AERB websitewww.aerb.gov.in by clicking “Pre-registration of Radiotherapy Institute in e-LORA System”. After filling the required information, the soft copy of the filled in excel sheet should be sent by email to email@example.com.The above information is required to be sent at the earliest by the radiotherapy institutions to avoid any delay in making the institution online through e-LORA portal of AERB.
For all existing institutions, pre-registration will be done by AERB after receipt of the above details. After completion of pre-registration, AERB shall provide USER ID and PASSWORD for employer, licensee(s) and RSO(s) of the institutions. Online submission of applications can be made by the institutions only after receipt of USER ID and PASSWORD.
Radiotherapy institutions should ensure that all radiation professionals working in the institution are registered with AERB through e-LORA.Kindly note that AERB plans to stop accepting paper based regulatory applications w.e.f. December 01, 2013 and all regulatory clearances will be issued based on electronic submissions through e-LORA only. Therefore, institutions should ensure timely submission of the above information and registration of radiation professionals/workers (as the case may be) so that a smooth switch over of all radiotherapy facilities to e-LORA can be done.
