Two medical physicists-in-training have been awarded the American College of Radiology’s® (ACR’s®) Richard L. Morin, PhD Fellowship in Medical Physics.

The ACR Commission on Medical Physics unanimously selected Crystal A. Green, PhD, of Duke University, and Marthony Robins, PhD, of Ohio State University, for the honors.

Green and Robins were selected from a remarkable pool of applicants, according to Dr. M. Mahesh, MS, PhD, FAAPM, FACR, chair of the ACR’s Commission on Medical Physics. “It is a great credit to Drs. Green and Robins that they were able to distinguish themselves among an accomplished group of their peers,” he said. “The future of medical physics and its contributions to the ACR are bright.”

Now in its second year, the Morin Fellowship is open to medical physics residents who are in the middle of the clinical training programs. It was named for Richard. L. Morin, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Radiological Physics at Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL, and former co-chair of the successful Image Wisely, an intersociety program that has reduced patient exposure to ionizing radiation during medical imaging.

Green and Robins will visit ACR headquarters in Reston, VA, for a week of hands-on experience with ACR staff in April. They will return to the area to gain exposure to radiology governance at the ACR Annual Meeting, May 16–20, in Washington, DC.
