The Department of Therapeutic Radiology at the Yale School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital invites qualified candidates to apply for one therapy physics resident training position with the CAMPEP-accredited Yale Medical Physics Residency Program. The Yale program is designed to prepare candidates with an advanced degree in medical physics or a closely related field for a professional career in clinical and academic radiation oncology physics. It provides two years of structured hands-on clinical training covering all aspects of radiation oncology physics plus one year for developing independent research skills and clinical projects.
Our program takes advantage of the academic and clinical strengths & resources of Yale University School of Medicine, Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the state-of-the-art Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven to provide residents with a comprehensive clinical and academic training in all areas of radiation oncology physics. Our department provides a full range of clinical services including IMRT, IGRT, SBRT, TBI, TSET, and SRS using modern linear accelerators, and Gamma Knife ICON; as well as brachytherapy using a full suite of LDR and HDR sources. The department and its affiliated Smilow Care Centers have 12 linear accelerators, 1 Gamma Knife ICON, 1 orthovoltage therapy units, 6 CT simulators, 2 HDR afterloaders, 4 types of major treatment planning systems, as well as the Mosaiq information management system. The department is also heavily involved in basic and translational research in radiation physics, cancer biology, and clinical radiation oncology. The successful applicant will join two other physics residents, 17 medical physicists and 28 attending physicians with a wide range of clinical expertise and research interests.
Candidates are preferred to have a doctoral degree in medical physics, physics or a related science. All candidates must satisfy the physics requirements to take part I of the ABR board certification exam and the CAMPEP prerequisite for medical physics residency. Our program participates in MedPhys Match (NMSID 19111). Interested candidates should apply via the AAPM Medical Physics Residency Application Program.
Question regarding the residency program can be directed to Dr. Zhe (Jay) Chen, Professor and Director of Medical Physics Residency Program, Department of Therapeutic Radiology, Yale University School of Medicine, 20 York Street, New Haven, CT 06510 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
