Review Courses

Saturday, July 25 • 8:00am - 6:00pm
Sunday, July 26 • 8:00am - Noon
$195
$100 for students with student I.D.

Two courses will be offered
Diagnostic Physics will take place in Room 211AB, Anaheim Convention Center
Radiation Therapy Physics will take place in Room 213AB, Anaheim 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. The review courses have been approved for continuing education credit by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP).
