Like other technically sophisticated medical endeavours, a hyperthermia clinic relies on skilled staffing. Physicians, physicists and technologists perform multiple tasks to ensure properly functioning equipment, appropriate patient selection, and to plan and administer this treatment. This paper reviews the competencies and tasks that are used in a hyperthermia clinic.
