Applications are now being accepted for one resident position in the newly-launched Clinical Medical Physics Residency Program (https://residency.mtsinaimedphys.net) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) in New York City. This two-year clinical training position will begin on July 1, 2019. We are actively working on CAMPEP accreditation and expect to be accredited within two years. The residency curriculum follows the recommendation of AAPM Report #249. Comprehensive training will be provided through 12 clinical rotations that cover all areas of clinical medical physics services, including: clinical dosimetry; treatment planning (3D, IMRT, VMAT, SRS, SBRT); IGRT; Brachytherapy (GYN/Prostate HDR, LDR, IVBT, XOFIGO, Intrabeam IORT, Skin Therapy, Eye Plaque); machine QA and commissioning; special procedures; and proton treatment. Besides structural clinical training, the new resident will have opportunities to participate in ongoing research projects in the areas of deep learning, clinical informatics, imaging device development, and medical image processing/reconstruction.
Applicants must have a masters degree or Ph.D. degree from a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program or have completed a CAMPEP-accredited certification program.
The Tisch Cancer Institute, a part of The Mount Sinai Hospital, is an NCI-designated cancer center and was nationally ranked the 18th best hospital in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report in 2018. The ISMMS Department of Radiation Oncology presently has 15 full-time board-certified medical physicists, 11 dosimetrists and 17 radiation oncologists practicing throughout the Mount Sinai Health System, treating approximately 230 patients daily. Our state-of-the-art treatment devices include: 11 Varian Linacs; Gamma Knife; ZEISS Intrabeam unit; Philips, Siemens, and GE CT simulators; BrainLab Elements and Eclipse treatment planning systems; Nucletron and Varisource HDR afterloader; AlignRT and RPM for motion management; MapCheck, ArcCheck, and portal dosimetry for IMRT/VMAT QA. A web-based platform has been developed and implemented to improve the efficiency of clinical workflow and automates many of our clinical tasks. As part of the department’s long-term growth strategy, we plan to install five additional Varian TrueBeam Linacs within the next five years. Mount Sinai is one of the partner institutions working with the new New York Proton Center, the first of its kind located right in Manhattan close to The Mount Sinai Hospital, which will start treating patients this summer to deliver optimal proton-based cancer treatments.
Interested applicants should submit a CV, official transcript copies, and three letters of recommendation to:
