The CAMPEP accredited Radiotherapy Physics Residency at Genesis Healthcare Partners & Affiliated Sites is a joint partnership of Genesis Healthcare Partners, San Diego State University (SDSU), Sharp Grossmont Hospital, and the Naval Medical Center. Our program focuses on clinical radiotherapy physics training with the intention of preparing our residents for ABR certification and a career as a Radiation Oncology Physicist. It is a two year tuition based training program that does not offer monetary compensation. During the two years, the residents are required to enroll in the four clinical rotation courses (each of six month duration) through SDSU, and rotate through the partner clinics. Upon completion the residents receive a Certificate from SDSU to verify that training and program requirements were met.
The deadline to apply is April 25th, and phone interviews with shortlisted candidates will occur in mid-May. Notification of acceptance will occur by the end of May and the start date is July 2nd.
Academic activities (e.g., seminars and examinations) and administrative support for the program are provided through SDSU, while the clinical sites provide the day-to-day comprehensive didactic and clinical physics training and experience in simulation and imaging, treatment planning, machine calibration and quality control (linac, tomotherapy, and CyberKnife), HDR brachytherapy, IMRT, VMAT, SBRT, SRS, image guided radiotherapy, special procedures, and radiation shielding and safety. Our program has a total of 8 board certified physicists and an MRI physicist. The clinical sites also include radiation oncologists and dosimetrists that participate in the residency program activities and training.
