Introduction to Radiation Safety (February, 1-12, 2021)
Personnel responsible for radiation safety activities in medical institutions are faced with numerous administrative and technical issues. New technologies are continuously being developed, often with unique radiation safety techniques associated with them. New research projects and clinical trials at medical institutions require the RSO to continuously evaluate new protocols, requiring a sound foundation in radiation safety. In order to meet the need within the medical community, ORAU conducts a five-day training course—Medical Radiation Safety Officer. The American Academy of Health Physics will grant 40 Continuing Education Credits for completion of this course.
*The webinar has been designed similar to the instructor-led course. There will be sessions that are attended by both MRSO and RSO participants. There will also be sessions that focus specifically on MRSO requirements and responsibilities, as well as laboratory demonstrations. See the schedule below for more details.
