Snapshot of state of knowledge circa 1999. The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences designated the Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (Videotape) course, being conducted October 1998 through September 1999 for 9.5 credit hours in Category 1 toward the Physician's Recognition Award of the American Medical Association. From the USUHS website: The Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (MEIR) Course is post- graduate level instruction concerning the biomedical consequences of radiation exposure, how the effects can be reduced, and how to medically manage casualties. The training includes nuclear incidents that can occur on or off the battlefield and that go beyond nuclear weapons events. It covers thoroughly the key subjects: health physics, biological effects of radiation, medical/health effects, and psychological effects. The on-site course is a 3-day event taught throughout the year at U.S. military bases throughout the United States and abroad. Who should participate—The in-person MEIR Course provides valuable information for military medical personnel, including physicians, nurses, medical planners, and first responder. Condition: Good.
