Clinically oriented three-year medical physics curriculum: a new design for the future

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2012 Sep;199(3):635-43. doi: 10.2214/AJR.11.7356.


Objective: Medical physics instruction for diagnostic radiology residency at our institution has been redesigned with an interactive and image-based approach that encourages clinical application. The new medical physics curriculum spans the first 3 years of radiology residency and is integrated with the core didactic curriculum.

Conclusion: Salient features include clinical medical physics conferences, fundamentals of medical physics lectures, practicums, online modules, journal club, and a final review before the American Board of Radiology core examination.
