Abstract


Dosimetry and Radiation Protection, and Nuclear Physics and Technology are among the optional subjects in the degree in Physics of the University of Zaragoza.  Both of them are taught by the Atomic, Molecular and Nuclear Area in the Faculty of Science. Since 2010, teaching staff on these subjects started to collaborate with a medical physics expert. The collaboration consisted of a seminar on Medical Physics and a guided tour to the clinical facilities. In these activities, the main tasks of a Medical Physicist and the way to access to the specialized training were explained.

In 2015 University of Zaragoza launched the first call of the Expertia Program.  This educational program adds professional experience to the academic programs.  Since then, the teaching staff on Dosimetry and Radiation Protection, and Nuclear Physics and Technology have applied for the Educational Expertia (Expertia Docente) Program in all the editions and the collaboration has been enlarged to include several Radiation Oncologists’ experiences in the activities.
