RSNA/AAPM Online Physics Modules

The RSNA/AAPM Online Physics Modules are designed to educate radiologists and radiology residents about important concepts in physics as described by the AAPM Physics Curriculum.

These modules are self-guided and include self-testing features to create a comprehensive experience for the viewer. They provide a basic introduction to radiological physics, imaging science, and radiation biology.

Each module has been developed by a team of individuals including at least one physicist and one radiologist. The modules undergo ongoing peer review to continually improve content and quality. Please click here for a list of key contributors involved in the development and continued management of the RSNA/AAPM Physics Modules.

The RSNA/AAPM Online Physics Modules are available to RSNA members and AAPM members as part of the benefits of membership.

ABR/ACR/RSNA/AAPM/ASTRO/ARR/ARS Online Modules on Ethics and Professionalism


These education modules were developed by the American Board of Radiology Foundation (ABRF) with educational grants from the Academy of Radiology Research (ARR), the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), the American Board of Radiology (ABR), the American College of Radiology (ACR), the American Radium Society (ARS), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). They are designed to educate physicists and physicians about the attributes and nuances of ethics and professionalism that are essential to the practice of medical physics, radiology and radiation oncology.  Each module is self-guided and includes self-testing features to help the reader assess his or her comprehension and application of the principles and practices described in the module.

Each module has been developed by an expert team of individuals and has been peer reviewed for content, quality and clarity.

These modules provide a basic understanding of ethics and professionalism issues, including the following topics:

  • Historical Evolution and Principles of Medical Professionalism
  • Physician/Patient/Colleague Relationships
  • Personal Behavior, Peer Review, and Contract Negotiations with Employers
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Ethics of Research
  • Human Subjects Research
  • Vertebrate Animal Research
  • Relationships with Vendors
  • Publication Ethics
  • Ethics in Graduate and Resident Education
  • Professionalism in Everyday Practice; The Physician Charter

The ABR/ACR/RSNA/AAPM/ASTRO/ARR/ARS Online Modules on Ethics and Professionalism are available to AAPM members as part of the benefits of membership.

The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program, Inc. (CAMPEP) has approved each course for 1.50 credits. This activity has been qualified by the ABR for SA-CME credit in fulfillment of MOC requirements. Please note that credits for these modules will not be automatically transferred to the ABR through the CME gateway.

If you are seeking MPCEC and/or SA-CME credit, you must attest to completion of the module(s) through your ABR Personal Database (PDB). Please print your module(s) completion certificate for your records and for audit purposes.
