clinical radiation physics lecture series is given in the fall and winter by the
medical physics staff. This course is specifically designed for the education of
medical residents in radiation oncology physics. The course director is Stephen Avery, PhD.
The medical physics course is given in the fall and winter by Jarod Finlay, PhD.
This course includes didactic lectures on the fundamentals of nuclear physics,
radiation interactions with matter, radiation dosimetry, radiation oncology
physics, and diagnostic radiological physics.
The anatomy lecture series is given in the fall of each year by Diana
Stripp, MD. This course provides instruction on the fundamentals of human
anatomy through the study of multi-modality cross-sectional images. The course
meets once each week for three hours. The first 1.5 hours is a theoretical
presentation followed by 1.5 hours of practical laboratory work (on the same
material). Participants are assigned required reading and short writing
assignments in additional to a mid-term and final exam (consisting of both
theoretical and practical portions).
The radiation biology lecture series is given in the spring of each year by
the radiobiology staff. This course includes didactic lectures on all aspects of
radiation effects on normal and neoplastic tissue. The course director is Keith Cengel, M.D., Ph.D.
