Health Physics in Radiation Emergencies REAC/TS course teaches advanced techniques to integrate physics with medicine

This three-day course is designed primarily for health physicists, medical physicists, radiation safety officers and others who have radiation dose assessment and/or radiological control responsibilities. The course presents an advanced level of information on radiological/nuclear event reconstruction, dose assessments/estimations and integration of the physics discipline with medicine.

This opportunity allows for interaction with medical practitioners regarding recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of radiological/nuclear injuries and illnesses. Specific topics include acute local and total body radiation exposure; internal and external contamination; internal and external dosimetry; biodosimetry and bioassay techniques; and public information management.

Demonstrations, exercises and problem-solving sessions complement classroom lectures. It is highly recommended that participants have an understanding of radiation science before attending this course.

Unless otherwise noted, Health Physics in Radiation Emergencies courses are conducted at our facilities in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

"I consider REAC/TS a national treasure. There are very few agencies so well-prepared to respond to emergencies and available 24/7 to health care providers across the country." -Physician/Medical Toxicology Division Chief, United States
