Successful Accreditation of Medical Physics Program by CAMPEP

A joint Graduate Program in Medical Physics between the School of Health Sciences and Indiana University School of Medicine has been accredited on June 22, 2012 by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP). The MP program has existed since 1990s in the School of Health Sciences and currently is a joint program formally called the Indiana University/Purdue University Medical Physics Program. The MP program involves the full participation of faculty from the IU Departments of Radiology/Imaging Sciences and Radiation Oncology and Purdue University academic units of the School of Health Sciences, Nuclear Pharmacy, and Veterinary Clinical Sciences Radiation Oncology. The program faculty have extensive basic and applied research experience in radiation physics, dosimetry, medical imaging, nuclear medicine, and radiation biology. Student mentoring and training are also substantially enhanced through the involvement of adjunct faculty at the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute (MPRI), and the Faith, Love and Hope Cancer Center (Lafayette, IN). The newly arrived CAMPEP accreditation not only ensures our students to be eligible for board certification upon their graduation, but more importantly helps foster the research collaborations among participating faculty, clinicians and technologists across the disciplines between two premier higher learning institutions in Indiana. The CAPEPE accreditation represents a milestone of our successful research and education in the medical physics area.
