Two MD Anderson Medical Physics Fellow resident positions (hybrid pathway) are available in our CAMPEP approved Residency Program in the Department of Imaging Physics at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. This 3-year program is a unique opportunity for high-caliber promising medical physics Ph.D. graduates to continue a trajectory toward becoming a Qualified Medical Physicist (QMP) working in an academic environment. The goal of the program is to create the next generation of leaders in medical imaging physics. During the 3-year appointment, the Fellow will receive 2 years of full-time equivalent clinical training while performing 1 full-time equivalent year of research. This will meet the American Board of Radiology requirement for Parts II and III of the examination process while the Fellow continuous to advance as a scientist academically.
The Program provides structured clinical medical imaging physics training and experience. Fellows participate in the routine clinical duties of a medical imaging physicist, through rotations including general radiography, angiography and fluoroscopy, CT, nuclear medicine/PET, MR, Ultrasound, breast imaging, and imaging informatics, as well as outside rotations in renowned hospitals in the Texas Medical Center (TMC). Fellows will work under the supervision of 26 board-certified medical physicists, including 20 physicists at the MD Anderson and 6 physicists at the TMC (for outside rotations), on a wide variety of state-of-the-art imaging equipment and procedures. Other support includes attendance at scientific meetings and participation in specialized training opportunities. For research, each Fellow is matched with a dedicated member of the MD Anderson faculty who serves as their research mentor. This relationship is based upon a mutual interest in an area of research in biomedical imaging.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in medical physics from a CAMPEP accredited graduate education program at the time entering our residency program. Candidates with a Ph.D. in physics, engineering, or related fields who have completed a CAMPEP accredited certificate program will also be considered. Our residency program will not participate in National Matching System this year (2019-2020). Candidates must obtain a temporary license to practice professional medical physics in the State of Texas.
