ATLANTA, Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- West Physics Consulting, the leading national provider of medical and health physics consulting and testing services, is pleased to announce the accreditation of its Diagnostic Medical Physics Residency Program by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP). The program is the largest of its kind in the United States and Canada.
The West Physics Diagnostic Medical Physics Residency Program is a three-year program that prepares residents to take the ABR exams and become fully board-certified physicists. During the program, the residents perform quality assurance testing and radiation measurements for diagnostic X-ray and nuclear medicine facilities under the general supervision of board-certified medical physicists as well as complete structured hands-on and didactic training in medical physics, radiology and nuclear medicine topics. The residents also assist the residency Program Director with special technical and educational projects. The program is designed to prepare residents for the entire gamut of technical activities expected of a highly capable diagnostic medical physicist. "We are so pleased with CAMPEP's decision to grant accreditation to our program, which combines a highly experienced faculty with opportunities and experiences for our residents that are truly unique in our industry," stated Dr. Geoffrey West, President and Chief Medical Physicist of West Physics. "Our status as the first and only truly global diagnostic medical physics consulting firm gives us the ability to integrate our residents into complex and sometimes ground-breaking projects all over the U.S. and the world, and we believe that these experiences will provide them with significant advantages throughout their careers."
