Professional Background

Dr. Rosenzweig is the Acting Director of Medical Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. He entered the field in 1993 as a post-doctoral fellow in the same department, having completed his graduate research in the area of experimental nuclear physics at the University of Washington in Seattle.

A native of Wisconsin, Dr. Rosenzweig served as a senior staff physicist for 8 years at St. Luke's Medical Center in his hometown of Milwaukee. He then took the opportunity to rejoin colleagues here at the URMC in a leadership position as the department undertook the major initiative of relocating to the new Wilmot Cancer Center in 2008. He is currently Acting Director overseeing the Physicist and Dosimetrist activities at the Wilmot Cancer Center and its affiliates. Oversight consists of clinical operations related to quality assurance of linear accelerators, CT's, treatment planning equipment, chart QA and all aspects of brachytherapy.

His main area of interest is external beam radiation therapy.
