REAC/TS experts provided just-in-time training for medical, health physics and emergency planning personnel. 2015 – ORISE placed 9,400 participants from 1,114 colleges and universities into workforce development programs. The events along this timeline demonstrate how DOE responded to and ORISE supported key national priorities.
