Purpose: To assess the impact of longitudinal telehealth training in stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for clinicians in Latin America. Materials and Methods: Professionals from two Peruvian centers received an initial SBRT/SRS on-site training course and subsequently received follow-up telehealth training (interventional group) or not (negative control arm). Twelve live video conference sessions were scheduled. Surveys pre- and post-curriculum measured participants' confidence in seven practical domains of SBRT/SRS, based on Likert scales of 1–5, and post-curriculum surveys assessed educators' experiences. Results: Sixty-one participants were registered, with an average of 24 attendees per session. Pre- and post- surveys were completed by 22 participants. For interventional and negative-control groups, mean changes in Likert scale were satisfactory for the former and remained unmodified for the latter. Conclusions: Conducting telehealth educational programs via virtual classroom sessions could be a reliable method to augment training for SBRT and SRS.
