About the Program



The University of Rochester Medical Physics Residency Program is a two-year program providing comprehensive training and experience in radiation oncology physics. Our program received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP) in 2022.  

The residency is designed to provide clinical training to candidates who have graduated from a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program or hold a PhD in physics or a related field. Candidates of the University of Rochester Radiation Oncology Clinical Physics residency program must have completed a CAMPEP accredited graduate program or certificate program before the start of residency training. We are looking for hard-working applicants passionate about a medical physics career.  

The Medical Physics Residency Program is fully integrated into the day-to-day operations of the Department of Radiation Oncology. There is constant interaction between physicists, oncologists, dosimetrists, therapists, and nurses. Training will be conducted primarily at Strong Memorial Hospital with some training at associated clinics. 

The program provides hands-on clinical education under the supervision of the program director and the department faculty. Residents are involved in all aspects of routine clinical work as well as all unique opportunities that arise, such as machine commissioning and clinical upgrades. Extensive training is provided in radiation oncology with rotations emphasizing a variety of topics, details of which can be found in our curriculum.
