Curriculum

The Diagnostic Imaging Physics Residency is a two-year program where residents are encouraged to have acquired a strong foundation in basic physics. During the program, residents will engage in clinical training rotations in all modalities. Residents participate in weekly conferences, monthly journal clubs and other special seminars.

Modalities

Radiography/Fluoroscopy /Interventional
Mammography
Computed Tomography
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Nuclear Medicine
Ultrasound
Radiation Safety/MRI Safety
Imaging Processing/PACS

Research and Teaching

At Indiana University  School of Medicine, the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences provides an optimal educational environment for its residents. The Diagnostic Imaging Physics Residency Program strives to facilitate close relationships among residents and the faculty. By maintaining small class sizes, residents can receive personalized attention and a customized learning experience.

Residents conduct a clinical research project, of which they submit an abstract for presentation at a professional conference. Residents also receive opportunities to teach medical radiology residents, graduate students and technical staff during the program.
