This training program will prepare the resident to perform other aspects of an imaging physicist''s responsibilities including radiation safety, teaching, research, and administration. Upon completion of the proposed diagnostic imaging physics training program, the individual will be expected to have gained the experience required by The American Board of Radiology (ABR) to become an ABR-certified diagnostic medical physicist and, more importantly, to practice independently in the complex world of imaging physics. The program is designed to meet existing professional standards for Medical Physics Residency Programs (i.e., Report 90 of the AAPM or its successors). The proposed Diagnostic Imaging Residency Program will be compliant with CAMPEP policies (i.e., Standards for Accreditation of Residency Educational Programs in Medical Physics, revised May 2019) that require completion of separate educational didactic and clinical components. The Diagnostic Imaging Physics Residency will enjoy potential collaboration with our existing CAMPEP-accredited graduate and Radiation Oncology Physics Residency programs, and will nicely complete our goal of providing a full range of therapy and diagnostic options to our medical physics students.
