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
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.
