The use of radiofrequency or microwave induced hyperthermia for the treatment of cancer is still a very new, challenging field. Although much has been learned in the past few years about the use of this modality through clinical trial and error, formal training for physicians and paramedical personnel is very limited. This paper looks at the role of paramedical personnel in the clinic and offers suggestions of formal training regimens to prepare personnel to render safe, effective treatment under the direction of the attending physician.
