Community Regional Medical Center is truly unrivaled in the region and measures up with top hospitals nationally. Part of Community Regional’s cancer care services includes California Cancer Center, where we provide advanced medical care in a compassionate and supportive environment. California Cancer Center offers customized treatments, advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment to treat nearly every type of cancer. We also participate in clinical studies that continue to achieve major accomplishments in the fight against cancer.
Our center was awarded a three-year accreditation, which is the highest (ACOS) American College of Surgeons designed program in the San Joaquin Valley. Our cancer programs offers a full scope of cancer programs through an on-site evaluation by experienced health care professionals. We are (CoC) Commission on Cancer accredited and are committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care. With a complete range of state of the art services and equipment in the region our advanced technology include: two Elekta linear accelerators, a CyberKnife with an active SRS/SBRTprogram, Pinnacle Treatment Planning System, Raystation software, Mosaiq EMR, Toshiba large Bore CT scanner, a Varian HDR unit and an active prostate seed implant brachytherapy program.
We are building a new comprehensive cancer center in nearby Clovis. In addition to our current equipment we will be adding a Philips Big Bore CT simulator, a Philips 3T MRI capable of performing MRI simulations, and a fully digital Vereos PET/CT. Initially we will move the two Elekta Inifinty accelerators to the new center and install a state of the art TrueBeam. With the advent of all this new technology, the new cancer center will need a fully dedicated medical physics program.
The successful candidate will be joining two board certified physicists each with more than 20 years of clinical experience, and a group of 3 certified medical dosimetrists. You will work collaboratively with Radiation Oncologists, Dosimetrists, and Radiation therapists to ensure accurate delivery of treatments. The Physicist is responsible for the physical aspects of all radiation sources and assists in training and mentoring staff, monitoring the work of Radiation Therapists and Dosimetrists and other duties as assigned by the Chief of Physics.
The ideal candidate will be board certified with a PhD in medical physics or a related field. Applicants with a PhD that are board-eligible candidates trained in an accredited residency program will also be considered. Additionally, you will need to become approved by the California Department of Public Health, Radiologic Health Branch and Certified in Therapeutic Radiological Physics by the American Board of Radiology.
We would prefer to have a candidate with Cyberknife, Brachyvision and Pinnacle treatment planning experience.
