Richard L. Morin, PhD, Fellowship in Medical Physics

The ACR is proud to support the development of young medical physicists through its Richard L. Morin, PhD Fellowship. The Richard L. Morin, PhD Fellowship in Medical Physics provides one or two medical physics residents the opportunity for hands-on experience with the American College of Radiology. Morin fellows will interact with College staff and gain governance experience at the ACR Annual Meeting. To accommodate this, the fellowship is split into two sessions so that the candidates can participate in a broad range of key activities.

The ACR will reimburse the fellows for travel and living expenses incurred during the ACR Annual Meeting. Fellows will earn a stipend of $500 paid upon publication of an article or completion of a project.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Candidates must be members of the ACR to be considered. ACR membership for those enrolled in CAMPEP-accredited residency programs is free.
  • Candidates must be currently enrolled in a CAMPEP-accredited medical physics residency program.
  • Candidates must be completing at least one year of clinical training in mid-2023 and must have at least one more year left to complete their program (e.g., candidates in 2+1 programs may apply for the RLM Fellowship in their first or second year of clinical training).

Applications for the 2024 fellowship will be accepted late in 2023.
