MRSE Certificate of Competence

IPEM is pleased to announce the launch of the IPEM Magnetic Resonance Safety Expert (MRSE) Certificate of Competence.

The certification model that IPEM has adopted requires both knowledge and experience. The knowledge is demonstrated by successfully completing the American Board of Magnetic Resonance Safety (ABMRS) MRSE exam. The MR experience of an applicant is assessed from a structured portfolio demonstrating a broad range of MRSE activities.

Applications for the IPEM MRSE Certificate of Competence will take approximately 3 months to assess. Successful applicants will be issued with a certificate and their names will be published across all IPEM communication channels.
