Course in Radioactivity.—
A course of instruction in the medical aspects of special weapons and radioactive isotopes will be held at the Naval Medical School, National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Md., May 19-24. This course is primarily for inactive reserve medical officers but a limited number of officers on active duty may attend. The problems likely to confront medical and dental officers in the field of radioactivity and techniques employed to counteract these problems will be discussed.Inactive reserve medical department officers who reside in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th Naval Districts and the Potomac River Naval Command may request active duty orders to attend this course of instruction from their respective District Commandant. Acceptance of orders to attend this course of instruction will not, according to the Surgeon General of the Navy, in any way increase the possibility of the officer's being involuntarily recalled
