Medical Imaging Physics Residency

Why UT Southwestern

The Medical Imaging Physics Residency Progam in the Department of Radiology includes two years of full-time training in diagnostic imaging medical physics that emphasizes clinical excellence and academic career development. As an integral part of the Medical Physics team, residents interact with staff physicists, physicians, nurses, radiation therapists, and biomedical engineers on a daily basis as they are trained to provide safe, effective patient care, and to function independently.

The Medical Physics faculty provide clinical service and consultation at three major hospitals in Dallas, as well as multiple outpatient clinics throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. In addition to teaching clinical fellows and Diagnostic Radiology residents, faculty members also make meaningful contributions to the research mission of the university. As one of the world's foremost research institutions, UT Southwestern has an outstanding international reputation for life-changing research that has led to some of the most important discoveries of our generation.
