ORAU Provides Accredited Training in Radiation Emergency Medicine for ER Physcians, Nurses, and First Responders

Students participate in a REAC/TS Continuing Medical Education course

ORAU’s continuing medical education courses in radiation emergency medicine prepare all types of responders for the medical management of radiation accidents.

Each year, more than 1,200 medical professionals benefit from thorough lectures and discussions based on ORAU’s world-renowned experience in radiation emergency medicine. Simulated drills and exercises reinforce learning objectives while allowing students to apply first-hand what they’ve learned.

Courses are offered on-site in Oak Ridge, Tenn., at your location, or through distance learning. Participants are eligible for Continuing Medical Education (CME) units or Continuing Education Units (CEU) at our on-site facility, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Respective courses are also accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians and the American Academy of Health Physics.

Additional courses are eligible for American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award (AMA PRA) Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the course.

In-House Courses

Through ORAU’s work for the U.S. Department of Energy, we offer accredited courses annually at our Oak Ridge, Tenn., facility.

ORAU can customize training to meet your organization’s specific needs and target audience. We can deliver it at your facility or ours in Oak Ridge, Tenn. We also continue to explore new ways to bring you to our classroom via distance learning.

Disclosure Statement

It is the practice of Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all its educational programs. All participating faculty, CME planners, and reviewers in these programs are required to disclose any relevant financial relationship(s) they have with a commercial interest that benefits the individual in any financial amount occurring within the past 12 months; and the opportunity to affect the content of CME about the products or services of the commercial interests.

The ORISE CME Committee also reviews activity content and the required financial disclosures to identify any relevant financial relationships potentially affecting CME activities.

If necessary, the provider will be required to make changes to activity content as a result of these reviews. ORISE and the CME Committee also reserves the option to exclude some presentations or abstracts from their accredited program of CME or present this content in a track that is outside of but in conjunction with accredited CME. As always, ORISE will ensure that any conflicts of interest are resolved before the educational activity occurs. Information concerning faculty financial interests or its absence will be conveyed to participants at the beginning of all CME activities.
