Training and Education
The Faculty of Physician Associates was formally launched on 2 July 2015. The UK Association of Physician Associates (UKAPA), Health Education England and the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), in conjunction with other Royal Colleges, have worked collaboratively to set up the Faculty – the first non-doctor faculty of the RCP.
This postgraduate training empowers natural scientists and pharmacists to assume responsibility for the production and quality control of radiopharmaceuticals. The course contents follow the guidelines of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM). Successful candidates achieve a “Certificate of Advanced Studies” issued by ETH Zurich.
The ETH Zurich holds this program in cooperation with the universities of Ljubljana and Leipzig.
- Module I : Aug 31- Sept 11, 2015, Ljubljana (Slovenia)
- Module II : Feb 8-19, 2016, Zurich (Switzerland)
- Module III: Sept 5-16, 2016, Leipzig (Germany)
7 new learning e-modules are now online provided by IAEA.
These E-learning modules are very comprehensive, interactive learning materials aimed at expanding the educational opportunities of health professionals working in the field of nuclear medicine and diagnostic imaging.
Acknowledging the fact that science-based medicine is crucial for professional development, we have also integrated more than 700 high-quality literature sources covering a plethora of topics in modern day clinical practices that can be found in the Guidelines and Literature component of each clinical section (e.g. oncology, cardiovascular, endocrinology, etc.)
Guidelines and literature section can be found here
The new IAEA publication “PET/CT Atlas on Quality Control and Image Artefacts” has been released on the Internet.
