Medical Physics Residency

The objective of the Residency Program is to train individuals with medical physics and related education to practice professional radiation oncology physics. The program will provide comprehensive structured education and training in a clinical environment. The resident will be, upon completion of the program, competent in radiation oncology physics practice and implementation of new technology, and prepared to sit for the certification examination of the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiological Physics. As an option, the program will help the resident pick a research project that is likely to be completed with the residency period, to prepare the resident to be a leader in developing new technology in medical physics.

The clinical training period is 2 years. Occasionally we offer positions combining 2 years of clinical training and 1 or 2 additional years of research.

This program is accredited by CAMPEP (the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs, Inc.).
