Medical Physics Residency Program

AZ Breast Cancer Specialists Medical Physics Residency Program
The Medical Physics Residency Program at Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists is a collaborative effort with the University of Arizona and the University of Texas Health Science Center. Our Medical Physics Residency Program provides a two-year clinical radiation oncology medical physics training program in accordance with CAMPEP guidelines and AAPM Report 90. Candidates who hold M.S. or Ph.D. degrees in medical physics or related fields are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will receive training at ABCS under the tutelage of our experienced Board Certified Physicists. Physics residents will undergo carefully supervised training in all areas of Radiation Oncology, including dosimetry, treatment planning, treatment aid design and construction, brachytherapy, radiation safety, radiation machine calibration, special procedures and quality assurance.
Arizona Breast Cancer Specicalists is significantly involved in breast cancer treatment and its state of the art facilities are quite busy: candidates will be expected to adapt to this workflow in the course of their training. The medical physics residency program at ABCs is designed to prepare candidates for certification in Therapeutic Radiological Physics by the American Board of Radiology (ABR). Although the program at Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists is strictly clinical, opportunities also exist in the areas of teaching and research and all residents are encouraged to participate.
