The 2019 course is now completed and the slides and video recordings of the presentations are available online.  The course registration form was turned into an interest form to collect people’s contact information so we can reach out when the date of next course is decided.  Thank you for your interest!

The Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course is conducted periodically by the Radiation Epidemiology Branch of the National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics. The course is intended for people who are interested in learning about the health effects of radiation exposure. The course begins with the fundamentals and progresses to topical sessions that provide an overview of the methods and key findings from studies of medical, occupational, and environmental radiation exposures.

The course material is designed assuming participants will have some familiarity with basic epidemiologic concepts, terminology and methods of data analysis; however, most of the material will be understandable for people with college-level training in basic biology, chemistry and physics.

Please share our Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry course flyer and agenda with your colleagues.
