Course Description

According to the AAPM, medical physics is a branch of physics that applies the concepts and principles of physics to the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Medical physics encompasses four subfields: imaging physics, nuclear medicine physics, radiation oncology physics, and medical health physics. The objective of a medical physics residency training program is to educate and train medical physicists to a level of competency sufficient for independent, professional practice in their specified subfield of medical physics. To accomplish this goal, adequate organization, facilities, staff, patient resources, and educational environments must be provided. A program shall document a description of its curriculum, facilities, faculties, policies, and evaluation criteria in a compilation known as a self-study.
