Saturday, July 21• 8:00am - 6:00pm
Sunday, July 22• 8:00am - Noon
$195
$100 for students with student I.D.

Two courses will be offered; see course outlines below:
Diagnostic Physics will take place in Room 200DE, Convention Center
Radiation Therapy Physics will take place in Room 200AB, Convention Center

The courses provide a good review of medical physics for physicists entering the specialty, those preparing for board certification, physicists in need of continuing education credits, and physicists who would benefit from a refresher course taught by experts in the field. Course notebooks are provided to registrants. The courses will be held concurrently on Saturday and Sunday.
