Radiation Workers working in the VWCH Radiation Oncology Department must complete the “Annual Radiation Safety Training: Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital Radiation Oncology Personnel” online course located in the VUMC Learning Exchange initially before working with radioactive materials and annually thereafter.

Please send assignment requests or questions about radioactive material safety training to radsafety@vumc.org.
