Imaging Physics FAQs

To apply, interested candidates are required to have a PhD in medical physics, preferably from a Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP)-approved graduate program or a related field. Demonstrated knowledge of medical imaging physics as well as knowledge of anatomy, physiology and radiation biology is encouraged. Candidates must also be able to communicate effectively with radiologists, technologists and other medical/ physics staff.

To participate in the American Board of Radiology (ABR) exam, participants are required to complete formalized residency training in an accredited medical physics program. The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP) is the only entity that accredits medical physics programs and continuing education diagnostic physicists.

Residents train in at least five local hospitals. The benefit from the Indianapolis campus is its unique hospital network located within close proximity and connected by a monorail system.

A minimum attendance requirement of 50 hours per year with a cumulative total of 100 hours for the 24-month training period is required.
