Medical Physics Residency Earns Re-accreditation
January 5, 2017
The Residency Program in Radiation Therapy Physics in Winship's Department of Radiation Oncology has been granted re-accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP). The prestigious award is effective through 2021.
CAMPEP is a non-profit organization that promotes consistent quality education of medical physicists by evaluating and accrediting programs that meet high standards.
"The re-accreditation means that we provide the very best training for young physicists in preparation for careers at cancer centers such as Winship," says Walter J. Curran, Jr., MD, chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology and Winship's executive director. "The need is increasing for highly qualified medical physicists who can design radiation treatment plans in the curative management of cancer patients."
The CAMPEP accreditation is a voluntary peer review process which ensures a program or institution has met a defined minimum standard.
