Customized Training & Distance Learning

ORAU Offers Flexible Options for Designing and Presenting Customized Continuing Medical Education Training

Carol Iddins of REAC/TS instructs participants in a continuing medical education class.

Because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to continuing medical education training, ORAU can customize courses 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 invest in the ability to transfer our knowledge to medical personnel in remote locations via distance learning courses. Our goal is to equip our facility so that we can bring the benefits of our unique setup to students. Live demonstrations on managing and decontaminating patients who have been in a radiation incident will help to bring our curriculum to life.

Some examples of our customized training courses include:

  • International Outreach Training in Mexico
    REAC/TS staff presented three days of training to more than 100 participants at the Mexican Navy Hospital in Vera Cruz, Mexico. The training prepared participants for a simulated response exercise coordinated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) at Mexico’s Laguna Verde nuclear power plant. The purpose of the exercise offered an opportunity to identify shortcomings in the national and international emergency response systems used to minimize the consequences of a nuclear accident.
  • U.S. Navy Medical Management Training
    REAC/TS' radiation emergency medicine professionals traveled to Groton, Conn., to present a first-of-its-kind course in radiation emergency medicine to a group of undersea medical officers at the U.S. Naval Undersea Medical Institute. The course offered participants in-depth education on the treatment and management of radiation injuries and illnesses, as well as featured a tabletop exercise addressing emergency response and medical consequence management of a radiological incident at a domestic sea port.
