Medical Physics Residency
This three-year residency program, which is accredited by CAMPEP, provides strong competency in clinical medical physics along with clinically oriented research and development experience. The program's goal is to train highly competent medical physicists who will provide excellent patient care and will contribute as the next generation of leaders.
Applicants should have a recent PhD in medical physics, experimental physics, biophysics, or related discipline and have a demonstrated track record of experimental design and execution. Recognizing the importance of diverse backgrounds to the field, the program will accept applicants from both CAMPEP-accredited medical physics programs and from non-medical physics programs.
Training takes place under the direct mentorship of experienced clinical and research physics staff with support from others in the department and university. Two years of the residency are dedicated to clinical training and one year to clinically directed research and development.
Objectives of the program are to:
- Provide the resident with the thorough experience necessary to work independently and provide quality patient care
- Prepare the resident for ABR board certification
