Download Mike’s Initial CE Credentials
After returning from active duty in the USAF during the Vietnam War in 1970, I began pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics at the University of Louisville. I receive my BS in Physics in 1973 and began working in a metallurgy lab in Non-destructive Testing using x-ray and radioactive sources, as well as ultrasound.
In 1976 I began to pursue my Masters of Science in Physics from the University of Louisville investigating the use of laser spectrometry for applications in remote sensing at the Moore Observatory. I received my MS Degree in Physics in 1979 from the University of Louisville. I then took a position as a Clinical Engineer in the Biomedical Engineering Department at University of Louisville Hospital.
I began my career as in radiological physics in 1983 in the Radiation Safety Office at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. I became Board Certified in Health Physics (ABHP) in 1992 and in Diagnostic Radiologic Physics (ABR) in 1996. I became the Radiation Safety Officer for the University’s Broad Medical and Broad Academic Radioactive Materials Licenses in 1989.
I retired from the University of Louisville in 2002 and continue working in Medical Physics as a consultant to hospital in Kentucky and Indiana.
