Reports to the Chief Medical Physicist and provides all functions relative to Medical Physics in the Saint Luke's Health System's Radiation Therapy. Includes but not limited to periodic equipment calibration, treatment planning, radiation exposure policies, supervision of the maintenance of the treatments units, simulator, and treatment planning system. Additionally, supports all special procedures, including but not limited to, SRS/SBRT, total body irradiation, HDR and LDR brachytherapy, IGRT, and IMRT. Insure adherence to state and federal regulations regarding radiation. Assist the Chief Medical Physicist in the oversight of dosimetry and patient treatment especially for difficult and complicated cases. Effective contribution in the design of new facilities for radiation therapy. Active participation in the quality improvement process, and implementation of new procedures and new technologies. The medical physicist shall conduct his/her professional activities in accordance with the standards of the American College of Radiology and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
The successful candidate will join a team that includes four radiation oncologists, five physicists, and five dosimetrists that provide service for three radiation therapy centers. Our facilities are fully integrated in a Varian environment using Eclipse and Aria. We are equipped with five Varian machines. One True Beam machine with Vision RT system, 6D couch and full SRS/SBRT capabilities. Two Clinac 2100EX, one iX with VMAT capability, and one 2100SC, which will be replaced with a new machine next year. Also, we have a Varian HDR system, with a dedicated suite. An active program for SRS/SBRT, and a very busy PBI program with our HDR system.
Additional travel may be required to participate in physics peer review and/or coverage situations.
