CNM BASIC RADIOISOTOPE HANDLING COURSE FOR NUCLEAR CARDIOLOGISTS & OTHER PHYSICIANS WISHING TO BECOME AUTHORIZED USERS ON A RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS LICENSE
CNM’s 80-hr Basic Radioisotope Handling Course is designed for Physicians wishing to become Authorized Users on a Radioactive Materials License and meets the 80 hour requirement of Didactic Basic Science Lectures for NRC or State Licensure. If you are interested in taking the course, please give course director Dr. Stephen Karesh a call at 773 802-7617 to discuss the options. While this course is no longer held at a hotel or conference center, we can bring the course to your facility.
This course is also designed to meet the didactic science requirements of taking the Certification Board in Nuclear Cardiology Examination (CBNC) and will be very helpful in preparing for the basic science parts of the Examination. The very comprehensive PowerPoint lecture notes, multiple practice examinations, license application guide, video presentations and review of essential parts of the Code of Federal Regulations prepare one for completing a license application as well as for operating a high level practice in Nuclear Cardiology. Included are the following topics:
- Radiation Physics and Instrumentation
- Radiation Protection
- Mathematics Pertaining to the use and Measurement of Radioactivity
- Radiation Biology
- Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry
We can offer flexibility regarding the lecture schedule (for example, holding the course over 3-4 weekends). Before leaving the course, each attendee will receive a certificate verifying completion of the 80-hour session. This intensive review is accompanied by a very comprehensive course syllabus provided to each attendee. Included are detailed typeset handouts for each lecture topic, accompanied by extensive audiovisual material. All speakers continually update their lecture materials to reflect state-of-the-art knowledge.
An integral part of the course includes mathematical problem solving. Questions are welcomed at any time during the course and periodic self-assessment examinations containing hundreds of questions will be given during the course and especially after completion of each major topic.
Course Sponsor: This course is sponsored by Consultants in Nuclear Medicine, nationally recognized for providing high-quality Continuing Education courses in Cardiology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiology and Oncology.
