The two-year clinical medical physics residency program at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center is catered to medical physicists who intend to work in the clinical therapy aspect of radiation oncology physics. The Banner MD Anderson Medical Physics Residency Program provides training and experience in the clinical aspects of radiation oncology physics for direct patient care in external beam treatment and brachytherapy. The program Is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP).
The resident will have an opportunity to work with the newest technology medical linear accelerators from Varian and Elekta as well as older machines. Training involves rotations with clinical physicists supporting all treatment sites as well as participating in research to be published and presented at local and national meetings. The resident will work under the direct supervision of experienced, board-certified, clinical medical physicists. Training progress will be monitored through regular meetings with the program director.
In addition to the breadth of routine clinical duties that the resident will be responsible for under the supervision of board certified medical physicists, the resident is responsible for completing rotations throughout the two year program which include:
