Developing the future of dosimetry education.
Dr, Robert Adams is the recipient of a $1 million NCI (National Cancer Institute) R25 grant entitled “Curriculum and Modules for Computer-Based Instruction of Medical Dosimetry“. This new grant will support the development of computer-based educational modules for the clinical training of the Department’s medical dosimetry students, and has the potential for use in other training programs both nationally and internationally. The UNC Department of Radiation Oncology has had a nationally-accredited, one year, medical dosimetry certificate program for the past eight years, the first accredited program of its kind in the United States. The purpose of this grant is to translate part of the dosimetry education and training into a computer-based format, with training modules including designed case studies, assessment and evaluation tools, and links to external resources for further topic study.
