COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Postgraduate Course in Radiopharmacy is intended to provide a basic level of education in radiopharmacy. It may also be useful for those in industry or regulatory agencies. Individuals responsible for the provision of the radiopharmacy service and/or research may require a higher level of training such as that provided by the European Postgraduate Specialisation Programme in Radiopharmacy or the MSc in Radiopharmaceutics and PET Radiochemistry at King's College London.

A course certificate will be awarded to those who have attended the entire course and who pass an optional multiple-choice examination held on the final day.



HOW IS COURSE TAUGHT?
This is a 4 day lecture course. The course is run annually in central London and consists of a series of 22 lectures by experts from around the UK supported by written material and recommendations for further study. The course is designed in such a way as to provide a basic introduction followed by topics covered at an increasingly advanced level throughout the week. Depending upon their background, their level of involvement in the subject and their particular needs, individuals may therefore decide to attend the entire four days, or only a more basic or more specialised day.


WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF IT?

A broader understanding of the science and practice of clinical radiopharmacy. A chance to interact with experts from around the UK and to network with colleagues
in the field.

The content of the course has been certified by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles.
