The program is designed to cover aspects of Radiation Oncology Therapeutic Physics training as outlined in AAPM Report No. 249, “Essentials and Guidelines for Clinical Medical Physics Residency Training Programs.” This training program structures the 24-month experience into one-on-one mentored time, which is designed to provide training on a range of clinical topics.
The resident will rotate through various clinical categories under the mentorship of a board-certified and/or experienced medical physicist who will evaluate the resident’s performance. As the resident moves through structured training in each major category, he/she may also participate in other activities occurring in parallel. If new technologies are introduced within the network, then the resident will be assigned to assist with clinical implementation.
Attendance at various relevant seminars, tumor boards, chart rounds, and journal clubs will be documented by the resident and will be reviewed monthly by the program director.
