This course will cover the fundamentals of radiation safety, what the different types of radiation are, what their properties are, and how they can affect you. I will also be talking about things like what happens if you receive acute radiation exposure, as well as the longer-term risk of developing cancer from exposure to diagnostic or therapeutic radiation. Next, I'll be talking about some of the concerns and some of the good work practices in the different medical departments that use radiation. Finally, I'll be talking about how we can address radiological accidents or incidents such as spills or skin contamination.

Course Instructor: Dr. P. Andrew Karam

Since 1981 I have worked primarily in areas related to radiation safety; as a radiation safety professional, a scientist and professor, a consultant, or an instructor. I am also a writer, with over 200 encyclopedia articles and several books in print, and an 8-book series (Controversies in Science, Facts on File) in the works - not to mention my scientific and technical writing (6 book chapters, a number of refereed papers, over 100 scientific presentations, several hundred encyclopedia articles, fact sheets, and over 100 technical articles and editorials in scientific and technical journals and newsletters).
