About the Program
The UW CAMPEP-accredited residency is structured as a two-year program with two residents admitted per year, for a total of four residents in the program. This program provides rigorous, clinically-based education in a stimulating academic environment. The program is consistent with the didactic recommendations provided by CAMPEP and the AAPM and offers hands-on experience through 12 rotations, through which the resident gains medical physics core clinical competence. We offer the only medical physics residency program with clinical training in photons, electrons, neutrons and protons. Our program is designed to take advantage of collaborative educational and research interactions with Radiation Oncology physicians and MD residents. Additional distinctive features of our program include a pediatric radiation oncology service and strong clinical and research collaborations with Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. Residents will join a medical physics faculty of 19 professional medical physicists.
The UW Medical Center (UWMC) and its affiliates offer a full spectrum of radiation oncology services including conformal radiotherapy, IMRT, VMAT, IGRT, SRS, SBRT, IORT, TBI, HDR, SGRT, gamma knife, brachytherapy, neutron, and proton therapy. Upcoming new equipment additions include Varian Ethos and Elekta Flexitron afterloader. Residents are required to complete a clinical development project with a medical physics faculty member, and there is an expectation of at least one abstract or journal manuscript submission prior to the end of the residency period. See the Alumni page at radiationoncology.uw.edu for the success record of our graduates.
Salary for this resident position is at least $72,000 per annum. Residents receive full health and dental benefits. The program supports registration and travel to one conference per year.
