Medical Physics Residency

The medical physics residency program provides two to three years of clinical radiation oncology medical physics training in accordance with CAMPEP guidelines and AAPM Report 90.  Candidates with M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in medical physics, physics, nuclear engineering or closely related field are encouraged to apply.  The successful candidate will receive training in all clinical physics activities in the department.  Upon completion of the program the resident will be prepared to pursue a career in clinical medical physics and enroll in the American Board of Radiology certification process in radiological therapeutic physics.  Depending on academic background of the incoming resident, didactic training may be required.  The residency program is strictly clinical, however opportunities exist for participation in teaching and research, for which the resident is encouraged to participate.
