Thank you for your interest in the 2011 Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course. For the 2011 offering, in addition to the three-day course, we have added two preliminary components. These components were added in direct response to participants' suggestions from the 2007 course.

Course Components

May 16, 2011: Half-day component on Understanding and Using Epicure in Radiation Risk Modeling Studies
May 17, 2011: One-day component on Basic Principles in Radiation Epidemiology, Dosimetry and Statistics
May 18-20, 2011: Three-day component on Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry: Concepts and Studies

Participants can register for as many components as they wish but registration is required.

Component Descriptions

Component 1: Half-day session on Epicure, a statistical software frequently used by radiation epidemiologists that is specifically formulated for assessing the underlying linear radiation-related risks.
Component 2: One-day background session on basic radiation epidemiologic and dosimetric concepts. This component is intended for anyone who wants a refresher course on those topics or who has a limited radiation epidemiology background.
Component 3: Three-day session of more in-depth radiation epidemiology and dosimetry concepts, as well as the seminal studies in those fields and recent updates.

Additional Information

  • If you would like more information on what each course will cover, please see the agenda.
  • Registration is free but is required for each course.
  • Coffee breaks and light refreshments will be provided. Meals will not be provided but a cafeteria and several restaurants are within walking distance.
