The Diagnostic Imaging Residency program received CAMPEP accreditation in 2018. This two year program will qualify residents for board certification in Diagnostic Imaging. The first resident started in May 2017 and completed the program in May 2019. MARP's second resident began the program in July 2019.
PhD Medical Physics, 2019
Residency start date: July 1, 2019
M.S. Medical Physics, 2015
UT MD Anderson / UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston
Thesis: Virtual non-contrast imaging from Dual Energy CT
B.S. Physics and Mathematics, 2013, Angelo State University
Residency completion date: May 1, 2019
MARP has also trained several physicists as Junior Imaging Physicists prior to formalizing the process into a residency program. MARP trainees have been successful in achieving ABR board certification and are currently employed as consulting medical physicists and/or academic physics faculty.
Resident Compensation and Benefits
MARP provides benefits and insurance programs to all residents appointed to the program. Resident’s annual stipend for the 2017-2018 academic year are:
First year resident: $52,000
Second year resident: $55,000
The resident's will receive 10 days per year paid vacation and all federal holidays.
For more information or inquiries regarding resident benefits please contact the residency program director.
The MARP Imaging Physics Residency program includes 9 clinical rotations designed to prepare each resident for the ABR board exams as well as a successful career in diagnostic medical physics. The residents at MARP will be provided with specific expectations and requirements for each clinical rotation during orientation. The clinical rotations include:
Fluoroscopy (interventional and angiography)
Mammography (FFDM, Tomosynthesis, SBB)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The MARP residency curriculum also provides training opportunities on a variety of special imaging equipment including (but not limited to) mini CT, mini C-arm, 1.0T open bore MRI, and stereotactic mammography systems.
Throughout each rotation residents will participate in equipment performance evaluations, radiation shielding designs, patient and fetal dose calculations, and institutional radiation safety/protocol committee meetings. Residents will also have opportunities for self-directed learning and will be expected to give quarterly journal club presentations. Additionally, residents will have the opportunity to attend some continuing education / professional society meetings.
