Medical Physics: Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Physics: Nuclear Medicine
Kaiser Permanente - Southern California Permanente Medical Group has 2 openings for the Medical Physics Residency Program in Diagnostic Imaging and Nuclear Medicine. The expected start date is summer 2020. The residency program was recently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program.
The program provides structured training and progress assessment in all aspects of clinical medical physics in diagnostic imaging and nuclear medicine, with direct supervision by the medical physics faculty. Training occurs in 15 regional hospitals and affiliated medical offices across Southern California. The curriculum provides comprehensive, mentored, hands-on experience, and progressive responsibility providing the opportunity to work towards becoming fully independent upon completion of the program. The medical physics resident will be expected to work in this training position for 3 years.
Under supervision, performs acceptance testing on all types of radiological imaging equipment to meet new equipment specifications and baseline image quality assurance metrics.
Under supervision, performs radiation dosimetry calculations and computerized data analysis.
Under supervision, performs equipment surveys including State of California, American College of Radiology (ACR) and Joint Commission required testing of diagnostic modalities such as radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography, CT, ultrasound, MRI and nuclear medicine equipment.
Support clinical medical physics of diagnostic imaging modalities to maintain compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements.
Assist with clinical support as well as health system staff training and education.
Assist with administrative efforts with regards to inspections and regulations.
Fulfill duties as assigned, including proper and complete documentation of clinical projects and clinical rotations.
M.S. or Ph.D. in medical physics, physics, engineering or a closely related discipline.
Candidates must provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States.
Candidates must have excellent verbal and written communication skills, basic knowledge in radiation physics, and a strong interest in working with a multidisciplinary medical team.
Preferred candidates should have a degree from CAMPEP accredited Medical Physics graduate program, or have completed all the CAMPEP required didactic coursework.
