AAPM/RSNA Imaging Physics Residency Grant (2014)

Description:

AAPM/RSNA Imaging Physics Residency Grant

On November 28, 2012, the AAPM Board of Directors approved $560,000 in funding for new imaging physics residencies, either diagnostic or nuclear medicine. RSNA is partnering with AAPM on this program and will provide an additional $560,000. With this funding, it will be possible to provide matching support for 8 new imaging residencies.

Each institution will receive $35,000 per year for 4 years in matching support of 2 residents.

The purpose of the AAPM/RSNA funding is to provide 50% support of a resident's salary for 8 imaging phyiscs residencies that are not currently CAMPEP accredited. The awardee institutions will provide the other 50% support. After the period of the award is over, the intent is that the awardee institutions will continue to fully support the imaging physics residencies.

Eligibility Criteria:

Only those imaging physics residency programs that have not previously submitted an application to CAMPEP (prior to Nov 28, 2012) for accreditation are eligible.

Programs that have received Prior AAPM/RSNA Imaging Physics Residency Grant Funding are not eligible.
