Texas Oncology is excited to announce the opportunity for a full-time, vibrant, team-oriented Medical Physicist to join our group of four radiation oncology centers located in the San Antonio, TX region.
Facilities, Equipment, and Team:
While operationally independent day-to-day, each center collaborates as four fully-staffed, Texas Oncology clinics in the local and surrounding San Antonio area (San Antonio and New Braunfels), through sharing of a common single database for record and verify (MOSAIQ), Eclipse treatment planning (conventional and SBRT), 2nd check program (Radcalc), Profiler2, MapCheck2, ATLAS, and the SNC 3D scanning system. Collectively, four Varian linear accelerators (C-Series, VitalBeam, TrueBeam), a Nucletron HDR Afterloader system, four CT scanners (GE, Siemens), and a mobile PETCT scanner (GE) are used to treat an average of 140 patients a day.
The region currently consists of 4 radiation oncologists, 1 Chief Physicist, 4 staff physicists, 1 Chief Dosimetrist/Radiation Therapist, 4 medical dosimetrists, 10 radiation therapists, and 4 lead therapists.
In addition to the outstanding staff and work environment, you will enjoy living in the Alamo City. Home to five Fortune 500 industries, with a cost of living lower than that of the national average and a vibrant diverse culture, San Antonio offers residents the opportunities of a big city without the big city feel. The metropolitan area is within proximity to picturesque small towns, the Texas hill country, and the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin.
