Micro Radiation Emergency Medicine (MicroREM) REAC/TS course teaches treatment and care of patients involved in radiological or nuclear incidents

This virtual course is an abridged version of REAC/TS’ Radiation Emergency Medicine (REM) class. It focuses on the fundamentals of medical care and management of patients involved in radiological or nuclear incidents. Topics include basic radiation physics; radiation detection/measurement/identification; early evaluation and treatment of acute radiation syndrome (ARS), cutaneous injuries, and internal contamination; prehospital and hospital readiness; and patient decontamination.

The microREM course will consist of three consecutive days of four-hour blocks of instruction. At a later date, an optional hands-on workshop will be offered with morning or afternoon sessions in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, where the principles learned are incorporated in a culminating hands-on exercise using live patients with mock injuries and transferable radioactive contamination.
