Nasa Space Radiation Summer School
The NASA Space Radiation Summer School (“NSRSS”) at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory is designed to provide a “pipeline” of researchers to tackle the challenges of radiation exposure to humans who will travel on space exploration missions. This concentrated, multidisciplinary program is taught by leading university and national laboratory biologists and physicists actively engaged in NASA space radiation research and BNL experts in charged particle experimentation and methods.
These lectures include an introduction to radiation physics, track structure, the interaction of spaceflight radiations with matter, the space radiation environment, charged particle dosimetry, accelerator operations and space radiation protection. The course also includes a research practicum as part of the core curriculum.
 
Microbeam Training Course
The RARAF microbeam training course at Columbia University's Nevis Laboratory in Irvington, New York is designed to provide a “pipeline” of researchers interested in the use and development of microbeam facilities for research in biology, radiation biology, and radiation physics. This intense program is taught by leading Columbia University biologists and physicists who are pioneers in the development and use of microbeam technologies.
 
Master in Radiological Sciences at Columbia
Our curriculum is aimed at fulfilling an unmet need for public health expertise in understanding and communicating the health effects of radiation exposure. The unique focus of the Radiological Sciences track, the first such program offered by a School of Public Health, is at the intersection of environmental health science and the human health risks of radiation exposure arising from accident, nuclear disaster, or terrorism.
Through rigorous coursework, practicum, and research, students will gain valuable expertise and training in health physics and radiobiology, conceptual and methodological foundations in biostatistics and epidemiology, and critical thinking and practical skills through hands-on experience. Students will learn how to conduct studies on the effects of radiation in a variety of biological systems.
 
IBPRO
Once a year, IBPRO brings together radiation biologists, medical physicists, and clinicians for six days of cutting-edge topics, innovative instruction, and opportunities for collaboration. IBPRO includes experiential learning, interactive lectures, and complex problem-solving activities.This is not a passive approach to learning — participants are involved in hands-on, real-world exercises throughout the six days of the course.

Concert Short Courses
By joint programming, defining joint research priorities and road mapping CONCERT is guiding radiation protection research in Europe. This joint effort is performed with a strategic perspective on supporting excellent science, on building and maintaining high competence in radiation and radiation protection science as well as further promoting integrative and multidisciplinary research on a European level. CONCERT contributes to the sustainable integration of European and national research programmes in the field of radiation protection.
 
Concert Short Course: Modelling Radiation Effects From Initial Events
The general objective of the course (in its seventh edition) is to provide the theoretical bases for designing radiobiological research and to integrate experimental and theoretical activity, including experimental design and models. May 22 - June 2, 2017
 
ESTRO School
ESTRO has become an internationally recognised provider of high quality education to meet the need for basic training and continuing professional development in radiotherapy and oncology. ESTRO promotes multidisciplinary education in oncology, with the objective of standardising knowledge and clinical practice, whilst recognising the diversity of radiation oncology practice in different parts of the world.
 
For Clinicians
 
Alda Center for Communication
The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science empowers scientists and health professionals to communicate complex topics in clear, vivid, and engaging ways; leading to improved understanding by the public, media, patients, elected officials, and others outside of their own discipline. This multidisciplinary approach to science communication training helps trainees tap into innate connections that come alive naturally when people recall a passion for their work.
