MADISON, Wis., Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced today that the company has opened the doors of its new global training facility, the Accuray Center for Education, located at its corporate headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin. The facility is designed for the future and will feature several fully-capable Accuray radiation therapy systems specifically for training, lab spaces with advanced remote learning capabilities and a hybrid, in-person with remote connection option that will enable multiple members of a medical care team to participate in the same course, at the same time, from different locations.
Learning opportunities begin early in the Accuray CyberKnife®, TomoTherapy® and Radixact® System installation process and continue throughout the life of the devices, making it possible for healthcare practitioners to access the information they need to consistently offer their patients the best possible care. Different education modalities - from in-person at the Accuray facility to on-site and self-paced, remote – enable medical teams to choose when and how they learn.
"Our customers are passionate about improving the lives of people diagnosed with cancer and certain neurologic conditions. That's why we work hand-in-hand with them to help ensure they get the most out of their Accuray products and are able to provide their patients with the highest quality treatments. Education – not just one course but ongoing opportunities for knowledge sharing – is key to making this happen. We are committed to delivering the optimal learning experience for our customers and believe our robust education program, with our new Madison training facility, will do just that," said Suzanne Winter, president and CEO of Accuray.
