health_physics_picThe use of radiation in industry, medicine, and education has created a need for persons trained in the principles of radiation safety and health physics.

To meet this need, UT Professional & Personal Development is pleased to join Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) in introducing the UT/ORAU Health Physics Certificate.

The certificate requires a minimum of 300 hours of radiological sciences taught by ORAU’s Professional Training Programs, including the five-week Applied Health Physics course (beginning Sept. 14), three elective courses, and a capstone paper.

The certificate is most applicable for persons seeking to begin a career as a health physics technician (average salary is $63,000). Learn more about careers in health physics.

For more information, contact the registrar of ORAU’s Professional Training Programs at (865) 576-3576 or Please refer to the UT non-credit catalog.
