Courses and Guidelines
Our Physics course is taught primarily by David Schlesinger, Ph.D., with a portion of the lectures done by Bruce Libby, Ph.D. Physics is held twice a week throughout the entire year.
Dr. Schlesinger is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery since 2004 and formally joined the Clinical Physics Faculty in the Department of Radiation Oncology in 2009.
Tarek Abbas, Ph.D. teaches our Radiobiology course, held in the spring of each year. The RadBio course was recently updated substantially to better align with content tested on the ABR board examination in response to input from recent residents. Our complete Radbio course is 17 lectures, followed by a review and exam. This full course is held in odd-numbered years, next presented in 2019. We also have a condensed version of the Radbio course, with only 6 lectures. This mini course is offered in the spring of even-numbered years, starting next in 2020.
Dr. Abbas is an assistant professor of the Department of Radiation Oncology and Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics.
Statistics was taught by Nolan Wages, Ph.D. last year. Dr. Wages works in the Department of Public Health Sciences, Division of Translational Research and Applied Statistics. We have 6 lectures taught in the spring of even-numbered years, along with the short Radiobiology course.
