Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course

The Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course is conducted periodically by the Radiation Epidemiology Branch of the NCI Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG). The course begins with the fundamentals of the health effects of radiation exposure and progresses to topical sessions which provide an overview of the methods and key findings from studies of medical, occupational, and environmental radiation exposures.

The curriculum was designed for participants with 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.

The course format:

  • Seminar-style lectures (~200 people)
  • Informal lunchtime and evening gatherings to support discussion and networking
  • Registration is free but required due to space limitations
