Radiation Oncology Medical Physics Proton Fellowship (Minnesota)
July 27, 2018
Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology
The Radiation Oncology Medical Physics Proton Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, is designed for candidates who have recently completed a CAMPEP-accredited medical physics residency program and who are interested in specializing in proton therapy.
This program focuses on the medical application of physics in proton therapy and includes both research and clinical experience related to medical physics aspects of proton therapy.
All training in the fellowship program is provided under the close supervision of experienced radiation oncology physicists.
Occurs in a large, state-of-the-art proton therapy center utilizing a Hitachi ProBeat synchrotron-based system with four pencil-beam-scanning gantry rooms;
Provides hands-on and evaluated experience in all clinical aspects of radiation oncology physics of proton therapy;
Ensures you are able to practice independently in proton therapy by the time you complete the program;
Offers research training and experience through mentored projects that culminate in the development of clinical protocols, conference presentations and peer-reviewed scientific publications.
Nationwide, there is continued growth in the area of proton therapy but relatively few educational opportunities in the field. Individuals graduating from this program are expected to be strong candidates for junior faculty and/or clinical positions at prominent proton therapy institutions around the country.
The Radiation Oncology Clinical Medical Physics Fellowship in Proton Therapy is a new program starting in 2016, a year after Mayo Clinic’s proton facility became operational. The program graduated the first trainee in June 2018. The program is limited to no more than two positions per year with the option of extending each position an additional year. The Radiation Oncology Clinical Medical Physics Residency and Fellowship, a CAMPEP-accredited residency/fellowship program which provides the foundations for this new program, began in 1997 and currently has between 6 and 9 fellows in the program.
