International Collaboration & Outreach

Manuel Arreola, PhD; Program Director

The Division of Medical Physics is proud to have met an important milestone in our effort to improve the health of others through the advancement of the science of Medical Physics by facilitating international collaboration and outreach.

This week, Dr Manuel Arreola, Vice Chair of Medical Physics, begins teaching remotely at the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana in Iztapalapa, Mexico City. Twice weekly, Dr Arreola will give live lectures to our international colleagues via Zoom as part of a “Special Topics in Clinical Medical Physics II” course.

Also starting this week, medical physics students enrolled at the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, will begin giving live seminars (via Zoom) as part of the UF Medical Physics Graduate Program’s “Seminar in Medical Physics” Spring 2022 course:

3:30PM Thursday, April 7

·         Hector Ramirez: “MRI: In Vivo Cerebral Connectometry Study Based on the Diffusion Tensor: Obese vs Normal Weight Children”

·         Yunuen Rojas: “Functional MRI connectivity in post COVID-19 children

3:30PM Thursday, April 14

·         Cristina Hernandez: “Nuclear Medicine: Characterization of a Siemens Symbia SPECT Equipment with 177Lu and 99mTc”

·         Julian Uribe: “Dosimetric Characterization of MicroDiamond Detector for Small Beams in Radiation Therapy- Preliminary Results” 

We are honored to be part of global collaborations and outreach in medical physics!
