The objective of the Imaging Physics Residency program is to produce an independent practitioner in the physics of diagnostic imaging who is a lifelong learner and who can work unsupervised at a safe and highly professional standard.

The program maintains a level of training, through periodic self-evaluation by both residents and mentors/staff, adequate to enable resident physicists to reach a level of competence sufficient to perform all aspects of routine diagnostic imaging tasks and to contribute to safe and accurate imaging procedures. In addition, the training prepares the resident to perform other aspects of an imaging physicist’s responsibilities including teaching, clinical research, radiation safety, and administration.
