Radiation protection firm Dade Moeller employs more Certified Health Physicists than any other private company in the United States.
RICHLAND, Wash. (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
Leading health physics radiation safety firm Dade Moeller is pleased to announce that its already impressive cadre of certified health physicists has expanded by one for a new total of 35. Michael C. Talmadge, based in Acton, Mass., is the company’s newest certified health physicist. Dade Moeller employs more certified health physicists than any other private company in the United States.
Talmadge successfully passed Part II of the annual certification exam administered by the American Board of Health Physics in July 2014. The exam is known as one of the most difficult certification tests, and Part II can be taken only after an applicant has demonstrated at least six years of professional experience in health physics. To demonstrate the level of difficulty of the exam, of the 89 Part II examinees in 2014, 28 passed.
A Dade Moeller employee since 2009, Talmadge primarily supports the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Radiation Dose Reconstruction Project. In addition to his work for Dade Moeller, he is a medical radiation safety officer and an assistant clinical professor in radiology at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. He also is an active member of both the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the Health Physics Society, for which he serves on the Board of Directors of the New England Chapter.
