Manpower Requirements and Education in Nuclear Science: An International Perspective
Since the 1970's, concern about the training of radiochemists in the US has been increasing along with the age of nuclear work force, while the number of academic institutions offering undergraduate courses and the number of radiochemistry faculty has been steadily decreasing. To address this problem, a summer program has been offered through the American Chemical Society to undergraduates since 1984. Students compete nationally for this opportunity, and those selected receive a <InlineEquation><EquationSource=”tex”>3,000 stipend. In addition, all other expenses are paid. In this manuscript, the curriculum is described, along with the need for additional training programs and their impact.
