Residency Program Summary:
The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at Yale New Haven Hospital-Yale School of Medicine is accepting applications for a resident position in the diagnostic medical physics residency program. Yale diagnostic medical physics residency training is a newly established program and will start in January 2019, led by Residency Program Director, Adel Mustafa, Ph.D. It is intended for candidates with an advanced degree in medical physics, physics, or a closely related field who are interested in pursuing careers as clinical Medical Physicists in Diagnostic Radiology. The program takes advantage of the strengths and resources of Yale University School of Medicine, the Yale New Haven Hospital state-of-the-art imaging modalities, and a network of affiliated hospitals and imaging centers. The program is working on an application to the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP).
It provides two years of structured clinical training that covers all areas of diagnostic radiology physics. Once CAMPEP accreditation is obtained and upon completion of the program, the residents will be eligible to take the American Board of Radiology (ABR) certification examination in Diagnostic Radiological Physics. The two year residency training consists of three main required components: attendance of diagnostic radiology related conferences, seminars, and didactic courses; hands-on training and service in structured clinical rotations; and seminar presentations.
During the residency, the residents will be exposed to a full range of clinical imaging modalities and related services offered at Yale-New Haven Hospital. This will include basic and advanced understanding of image acquisition and formation, review and updating of imaging protocols, routine and advanced image processing methods, pediatric and adult dose management and optimization, special radiation dosimetry program, system performance testing and quality evaluation, patient and safety policies and procedures and hospital-wide program for meeting regulatory and accreditation requirements. Yale Diagnostic Medical Physics section has a wide range of radiation detection and measurement equipment for acceptance and annual testing, and an established quality assurance program.
CAMPEP-accredited Ph.D. or M.S. degree in Medical Physics OR a doctoral degree in a related field (e.g. physics, engineering) with additional medical physics coursework
We currently do not offer coursework to satisfy CAMPEP's didactic prerequisites
