The June 2020 Focus Newsletter (Presidents Words) announced that the ACPSEM Board had approved the creation of a new certification ACPSEM Magnetic Resonance Safety Expert (MRSE).
The ACPSEM is pleased to announce its first ACPSEM MR Safety Expert (MRSE) online course. The course will run by means of webinars and off-line assignments from September 2020 to March 2021 and include preparatory work in late August. Successful completion of the course, assignments and associated assessments will lead to Certification as an ACPSEM MR Safety Expert (MRSE).
The inaugural Chair of the ACPSEM MR Safety Assessment Panel (MRSAP) is Prof. Donald McRobbie. Other members of the panel, including external experts, are in the process of being appointed.
The online format has been developed to enable this training to be delivered in the prevailing pandemic-constrained environment.
