The Division of Medical Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology, located at the University of Maryland Medical Center, has an opening for a resident in our two-year Medical Physics Residency Program starting July 1, 2020. Our CAMPEP accredited program provides clinical training in radiation oncology physics. For an overview of our program, visit our website http://www.medschool.umaryland.edu/radonc/Education/Medical-Physics-Residency-Training-Overview/. Candidates are required to have a PhD in Medical Physics, Physics or a closely related field, and are expected to complete the requirements for their degree prior to July 1, 2020. Preference will be given to graduates of a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program and to candidates with post-doctoral fellowship experience in Radiation Oncology Physics. Candidates who have not acquired their degree from a CAMPEP approved program should successfully complete the six required graduate-level courses described in AAPM report 197S before starting the program. Resident compensation starts at PGY-1 level currently at $54,864. For detailed information about salary and benefits please go to https://www.umms.org/ummc/pros/gme/current/resident-fellow-resources/salary-benefits. Candidates should apply using the AAPM MP-RAP (Medical Physics Residency Application Program) at https://www.aapm.org/mprap/. Applications will be accepted now through January 1st 2020.

About University of Maryland
The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Maryland provides a full range of clinical radiation oncology services at the main campus of the University of Maryland Medical Center, the Maryland Proton Treatment Center, and at three well-integrated community practice centers. All practice sites are connected via a telemedicine network facilitating frequent interactions between facilities. The Medical Physics Division is currently comprised of 25 faculty physicists, 17 dosimetrists, 5 information technology administrators and several post-doctoral fellows. Services and technologies provided include conformal radiotherapy, IMRT, VMAT, on-line portal imaging, image-guided radiotherapy using kV imaging, cone-beam CT, Vision RT, and Calypso; stereotactic radiosurgery/radiotherapy and brachytherapy are also provided. The Department is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including 3 Varian TrueBeam, 4 Varian Trilogy, 2 Varian Clinac IX, and a Varian Edge Stereotactic Linac, 1 Gamma Knife Perfexion unit, a Gamma Pod (the world’s first breast- radiosurgery unit), 2 Nucletron HDR units, two Calypso 4D localization systems, 4 Vision RT Systems and four multi-slice large bore... CT simulators with 4D capabilities. The Marlyand Proton Treatment Center is a state-of the art facility opened over three years ago and includes one dual energy CT simulator and a dedicated MRI unit. The Department has access to clinical PET/CT and MR scanners. The department benefits from collaborations with a very well-funded radiation biology program which has access to four biological kV irradiators, including a state-of-the-art image-guided small animal radiation research platform (SARRP). Other campus-wide shared resources include small-animal imaging CT, PET and MR scanners. Treatment planning systems from multiple vendors include RaySearch, Philips, Varian, and Oncentra.
The main facility for the Department of Radiation Oncology is located in downtown Baltimore, close to the Inner Harbor waterfront and professional sports stadiums. We are surrounded by historic neighborhoods with unique shops and restaurants for every style and taste. We also benefit from being in close proximity to a myriad of museums, musical and dramatic arts venues, and wonderful walking, hiking and biking trails and BWI airport. In addition, the heart of Washington DC with all its cultural, historic and entertainment options are a short car or train ride away.
The University of Maryland Medical Center is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
