AAPM Grant and Fellowship OfferingsAAPM Grant and Fellowship Offerings

Grants:

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 $280,000. **UPDATE** The RSNA has approved additional funding and is now providing a total of $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 physics 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.

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.

The Research Seed Funding Grant. Two $25,000 grants will be awarded to provide funds to develop exciting investigator-initiated concepts, which will hopefully lead to successful longer term project funding from the NIH or equivalent funding sources.  Funding for grant recipients will begin on July 1 of the award year. Research results will be submitted for presentation at future AAPM meetings.

Must be a member of the AAPM at time of application (any membership category). Pending membership status not accepted. **No Exceptions**

The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Summer Undergraduate Fellowship Program is designed to provide opportunities for undergraduate university students to gain experience in medical physics by performing research in a medical physics laboratory or assisting with clinical service at a clinical facility. In this program, the AAPM serves as a clearinghouse to match exceptional students with exceptional medical physicists, many who are faculty at leading research centers. Students participating in the program are placed into summer positions that are consistent with their interest. Program DetailsStudents are selected for the program on a competitive basis to be an AAPM summer fellow. Each summer fellow receives a stipend from the AAPM.

The fellowship will be for a period of 10 weeks during the summer academic period (May to September), which is mutually suitable to the mentor and fellow.
