The University of California, San Francisco, Department of Radiation Oncology is seeking a Chief of Clinical Physics. UCSF is the premier medical center in Northern California, currently ranked 7th nationally by US News and World Reports. UCSF is also #2 in NIH funding nationwide. The Department of Radiation Oncology at the UCSF is part of the Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, and employs 18 radiation oncologists, 19 staff and faculty physicists, 9 dosimetrists, and approximately 35 radiation therapists. The Department provides in- and outpatient radiotherapy services across three facilities within the city of San Francisco. Long Hospital, located on the Parnassus Campus, has two linear accelerators as well as an active GammaKnife program. The Mount Zion campus has four linear accelerators, and the Mission Bay campus, which opened in 2015, has one Varian TrueBeam unit. All three centers are equipped with multi-slice CT sim units. HDR services are provided at both Mount Zion and Mission Bay, and LDR brachytherapy and intraoperative radiotherapy are performed at Long and Mission Bay. Treatment planning is supported by Pinnacle, Eclipse, RayStation and iPlan, in addition to the dedicated GammaKnife, CyberKnife and Tomotherapy systems; the department is presently migrating all treatment planning to RayStation. A central Mosaic oncology information system supports all three campuses and serves as an interface to the UCSF EMR. An agreement is in place between UCSF and RaySearch to co-develop the next generation oncology information system (RayCare). A new Precision Cancer Medicine Building is under construction in Mission Bay and will add two additional linear accelerators as well as a dedicated MR simulator. A two room proton therapy center is also scheduled to open on the Mission Bay campus in 2021.
The Chief of Clinical Physics oversees and supervises the clinically related work activities of all physics and dosimetry assignments across the radiotherapy enterprise.
