Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania


  1. Radiotherapy Physics

    • The 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.
  2. Medical Radiation Engineering

    • 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.
  1. Image-Based Anatomy

    • 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).
  1. Radiobiology

    • 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.
