Abstract

Major changes in the ABR certification process have been implemented which would affect the physics teaching programs for radiology residents. Radiology residents entering residency programs after June 30, 2010 will take their first computer based ABR core examination in 2013 after completing three years of training. The final ABR certification examination is also computer based and will be administered 15 months after the completion of residency training. There will be no oral exam. Moreover, the organization and content of the physics portion of the core exam is scheduled to change. The emphasis of the questions will be directed toward image quality and safety and will have a clinical focus. This session is based upon an article published in the JACR in November 2010. The session is divided into several sections aimed at providing guidance for physicists who teach radiology residents. The first portion of the program will address the changes to the ABR examination process. The next portion will discuss several potential approaches for teaching residents in the era of the ABR changes. The following portions of the program will suggest several useful resources available to physicists to supplement their teaching programs. These resources include: the AAPM Diagnostic Radiology Physics Curriculum, the new AAPM / RSNA web‐based radiology teaching modules and the Radiographics AAPM / RSNA physics tutorial for residents articles. There are now 46 AAPM / RSNA web‐based modules and more than 25 Radiographics tutorial articles which all residents can access without any fees. This session will end with a discussion panel led by the speakers.
