Why Medical Physics Residents Choose Weill Cornell Medicine
The Department of Radiation Oncology’s Medical Physics Residency is a two year Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP) approved training program in cooperation with Columbia University. It is designed for candidates who are interested in careers in clinical radiation oncology physics. The Medical Physics Residency Program, with a sub-specialty of Therapeutic Radiologic Physics, provides structured training and progress assessment in all aspects of clinical therapeutic radiation oncology physics under the supervision of board-certified medical physicists. The program extends over two years, focusing heavily on clinical practice. Nevertheless, participation in the research projects of the department (either clinical, computational, or primary) is encouraged and initiated helped by the faculty, as desired.
Objectives of the medical physics residency program:
- Provide in-depth professional training and extensive exposure in science and technology of therapeutic radiologic physics in a structured clinical environment.
- Enhance critical thinking and problem-solving skills regarding clinical practice decision making
- Develop resident competency in every aspect of clinical medical physics, including codes of ethics in professional practice
- Facilitate understanding of the topics from the study guides of the American Board of Medical Physics and the American Board of Radiology
Candidates should submit their application through the Medical Physics Residency Application program. https://natmatch.com/medphys/directory/participating-programs.html
