About the Program
Ethos™ Therapy: Intelligent Adaptation Comes to the Clinic
What We're Looking For
Our program is designed to produce excellent clinical medical physicists with a focus on radiation therapy physicists. Successful candidates will have a strong background in undergraduate physics, but do not need to have been physics majors. Computer or data science, imaging science, engineering, chemistry, and biology majors are all good fits for our program. Experience with image manipulation, object-oriented programming, machine learning, and radiation physics will all be considered as an additional boon to any potential candidate. All students are required to complete a thesis-based research project by the end of their program. Past publications or research efforts will be factored in to the strength of any application.
Our ideal candidate is:
- Motivated with a strong background in science and computation, and has some basic research experience
- They are looking to be involved clinically and to pursue a residency in therapy physics
- They want to become familiar with a wide range of clinical technologies and techniques, and to perform projects that will have a direct impact on the excellent care we provide to our patients at the Wilmot Cancer Institute.
