University of Washington (UW) in Seattle is currently seeking applicants for two Medical Physics Resident positions in Radiation Oncology starting 1 July 2020. The UW CAMPEP-accredited residency is structured as a two-year program with two residents admitted per year, for a total of four residents in the program. This program provides rigorous, clinically-based education in a stimulating academic environment. The program is consistent with the didactic recommendations provided by CAMPEP and the AAPM and offers hands-on experience through 12 rotations, through which the resident gains medical physics core clinical competence. We offer the only medical physics residency program with clinical training in photons, electrons, neutrons and protons. Our program is designed to take advantage of collaborative educational and research interactions with Radiation Oncology physicians and MD residents. Additional distinctive features of our program include a pediatric radiation oncology service and strong clinical and research collaborations with Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. Residents will join a medical physics faculty of 20 professional medical physicists.
The UW Medical Center (UWMC) and its affiliates offer a full spectrum of radiation oncology services including conformal radiotherapy, IMRT, VMAT, IGRT, SRS, SBRT, IORT, TBI, HDR, gamma knife, brachytherapy, neutron, and proton therapy. Residents are required to complete a clinical development project with a medical physics faculty member, and there is an expectation of at least one abstract or journal manuscript submission prior to the end of the residency period. See the Alumni page at radiationoncology.uw.edu for the success record of our graduates.
Applicants must have completed a CAMPEP-accredited graduate degree or CAMPEP-accredited certificate program. A PhD in medical physics, physics, or related science is required and must be completed prior to the residency start date.
Salary for this resident position is at least $60,000 per annum. Residents receive full health and dental benefits. The program supports travel to one conference per year and to one offsite educational/training course during the residency. Applicants must use the MP-RAP (Medical Physics Residency Application Program) system and must participate in the MedPhys Match Program specifying the UW program code 19011. The deadline for applications is December 1, 2019. Skype screening interviews will be conducted in early January. Selected applicants will be invited to interview onsite on February 10 and 14. See also our program website and on the Residency Interview Calendar on the SDAMPP website. Applications should include a cover letter, CV, transcripts of university undergraduate and graduate courses, a statement of research interest, and three letters of reference. Any UWMC program specific statements or materials may be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants must be US citizens, US Permanent Residents or specify the visa that will permit the applicant to live and work in the USA for the full extent of this two-year medical physics resident training period, July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2022.
At the University of Washington, diversity is integral to excellence. We value and honor diverse experiences and perspectives, strive to create welcoming and respectful learning environments, and promote access, opportunity and justice for all.
