Summary: The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine has an exceptional opportunity for a clinically focused radiation therapy medical physicist to join our team. This position would be in support of our services at the Delbert Day Cancer Institute in Rolla Missouri. This position is truly unique as Dr. Day is the inventor of TheraSpheres and has active involvement with the institute, the institute has state of the art facilities with plans for expansion, active research programs, and strong connections with Washington University, all while being located in a charming community nestled in the beautiful Ozarks. Medical physics and treatment planning services at the center are provided by several university faculty and staff. Physician leadership is exceptional and very supportive. Washington University has fully integrated medical physics operations and this position offers benefits of practicing in a progressive community radiation therapy practice with support of a broader team across a network of community and academic practices.
Environment: The medical physics division currently has over 40 medical physicists for support of our clinical operations, research, educational, and outreach activities. The division has over 60 other members consisting of medical physics assistants, QA technicians, residents, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, programmers, and staff. The Delbert Day Cancer Institute (https://phelpshealth.org/conditions-treatments/delbert-day-cancer-institute) offers an extensive portfolio of radiation therapy procedures and there are current plans to add the second linear accelerator and to expand imaging and radiopharmaceutical capabilities. The center itself moved into a new building in 2017 and became a part of Washington University’s Siteman Cancer Center Affiliate network in 2018 (https://vimeo.com/275667573) and is APEx accredited since April 2019. It is this combination of people, resources, and organization that make this a truly unique opportunity.
The Department of Radiation Oncology at Washington University has developed an exceedingly integrated network of academic and community practices with a mission of advancing the field through research, education, and state of the art clinical practices. The department supports several education programs, including the longest-standing CAMPEP accredited medical physics residency, and a newly formed graduate program in Medical Physics. All our affiliate clinical facilities are dedicated to promotion of best practices and our clinical operations are designed to leverage the size and scope of resources to advance all practices jointly.
The physics and dosimetry team at Phelps Health are responsible for participating in the local medical physics activities while actively interfacing with the entire Washington University physics & dosimetry group to support the development and deployment of best practices.
Qualifications: The successful candidate must be certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Medical Physics. Washington University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
