AAPM Residency Training Program Workshop
Organization and Completion of CAMPEP Self-Study

February 6-7, 2009
Hyatt Regency DFW Airport

Workshop Objective

To promote the increase in the number of certified Medical Physics Residency Programs. Targeted attendees are institutions that are actively pursuing Medical Physics Residency Program certification by CAMPEP, but have yet to submit their CAMPEP required Residency Program Self Study, a self assessment report by the clinical residency program director giving evidence of consistency of the proposed program with a set of guidelines found in AAPM Reports 79 & 90.  In addition, a set of CAMPEP guidelines and a Self-Study template can be downloaded from the CAMPEP web site.  However, many still struggle to navigate the application process and overcome their institutional challenges. 

The Workshop is an event where attendees will receive lectures dissecting the components of the CAMPEP Self Study along with practical issues (e.g., dealing with hospital administration, funding sources, resident recruitment, affiliate programs, etc.).  Corresponding to each section of the Self Study, the participants will spend time to create a draft for their own Self Study with direct interaction with Workshop faculty.  The goal of the workshop is for participants to leave with a reasonably complete draft of their institution’s Self Study, with deficient areas clearly identified and solutions suggested.
