The Mount Sinai Healthcare System is inviting applications for a medical physicist position at either PhD or MS level. Primary clinical responsibilities include treatment planning, weekly chart check, overseeing patient simulation and treatment setup, IMRT QA, machine troubleshooting and routine QA, and specialized procedures such as prostate implant LDR, HDR, SRS and SBRT. Department teaching is encouraged for all physics staff.
Ph.D. physicists, expected to participate in research and development of new techniques for patient treatment, should have a strong interest and record of research and development. Qualified Ph.D. candidates would receive a commensurate faculty appointment. A physics residency program is being implemented, with first residents expected in 2019. Teaching of the physics physician residents is expected.
*Facility and Equipment:*
The successful candidate will join a team of 14 ABR physicists (8 PhD’s, 6 MS), 8 dosimetrists, 16 physicians, and physics resident.
The Radiation Oncology provides services in four facilities across Manhattan, using 11 Varian Linacs with CBCT. OSMS/VisionRT, 6DOF couch, HD-MLC, ExacTrac are available. Treatment planning is performed using Eclipse. MOSAIQ is used for R&V. Four dedicated 16-slice 4DCT simulators are used for treatment planning. QA equipment includes Blue Phantom, MapCheck, Matrix, and Varian EPID, etc. The department is a film and paper chart free environment. The department is treating 220 patients daily.
The Mount Sinai Hospital, together the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount
Sinai, is part of the Mount Sinai Health System, which includes more than
7,000 primary and specialty care physicians, 3535 beds, and 12 ambulatory
surgical centers. The hospital is ranked top on US News and World Report
2017-18 Best Hospitals Rankings Honor Roll, locating on the Upper East Side
of Manhattan on Fifth Avenue’s Museum Mile, just across the street from the
beautiful 843-acre Central Park. For more information about the hospital,
