The CAMPEP accredited Imaging Physics Residency Program in the Radiology Department is a clinical training program designed to provide a two-years of progressive supervised clinical training. Throughout the program, the resident is expected to participate in routine clinical imaging physics activities, and work closely with faculty physicists, clinical engineers, and technologists. The goal of the residency program is to train imaging physicists to be competent to practice independently in clinical diagnostic imaging physics. The program provides clinical training to prepare graduates for the certification examination of the American Board of Radiology (ABR) and a professional career in diagnostic radiological physics.
The Imaging Physics Resident is expected to assist with medical physics testing related to 1) acceptance, routine QA, ACR accreditation, and clinical implementation of new imaging technologies and protocols; 2) perform imaging equipment performance evaluation testing for x-ray radiography/fluoroscopy, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and digital mammography; 3) participate in clinical and translational imaging physics research and ongoing educational activities for imaging technologists, radiology and medical physics residents; and 4) perform other duties as assigned by the Chief Medical Physicist. Strong critical thinking, problem solving and attentiveness to detail is required, and excellent oral and written communication skills are essential. The resident’s work requires considerable variety of fairly steady and active physical exertion with equipment and/or continuous standing or walking, and communicating with physicians, technical staff and clinic personnel. In addition to clinical rotations, the resident is encouraged to participate in research, and present the research result for presentation and publication on a national level. A preferred candidate should have a recent MS/Ph.D. degree in medical physics from a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program or have completed a CAMPEP-accredited Certificate Program in Medical Physics.
The Department of Radiology has 93 MD radiologists, 10 PhD scientists/physicists, and 53 residents/fellows. The Section of Medical Physics in Radiology Department includes 3 Ph.D. clinical imaging physicists, 1 medical physics coordinator, 2 imaging physics residents, 1 education program coordinator, other administrative supporting staff, and provides imaging physics services for more than 130 radiography/fluoroscopy units, 20 interventional procedure labs, 18 MRI (1 interventional MRI), 19 CT (1 interventional CT), 26 Digital 2D mammography/DBT, 220 Ultrasound, 18 Nuclear medicine camera/SPECT, and 1 PET/CT.
