We are inviting applications for the Harvard Medical Physics Residency Program in Radiation Oncology Physics for the academic year beginning 7/1/2021. This is a CAMPEP-accredited program and is jointly administered by the Departments of Radiation Oncology of three major Harvard Medical School teaching affiliates: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center, and the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Our CAMPEP-accredited Physics Residency is structured as a three-year training program which includes an initial year of research and development work, followed by two years of clinical training. We accept two residents per year. Our program is intended for candidates with doctoral degrees in medical physics, physics, and related physical sciences or engineering who are interested in careers as medical physicists in radiation oncology. The program provides both didactic courses and hands-on clinical training in all aspects of radiation oncology physics, as well as opportunities to participate in research and development projects. Clinical training takes place on a rotating basis among the three academic centers as well as community based hospitals. Please visit our website for further information regarding the entrance requirements for our program: harvardmedphys.org.
Our CAMPEP-accredited Certificate Program courses can be taken as part of the residency or as a stand-alone program. Further information on the CAMPEP course requirements is available at campep.org/ProspectiveApplicants.asp.
Our residency program participates in the MedPhys Match (www.natmatch.com/medphys/), and candidates must register for the Match and apply through the AAPM Medical Physics Residency Application Program (aapm.org/mprap). The application deadline for our program is 12/1/2020. Select candidates will be invited to participate in an initial round of remote videoconference interviews. Finalists will be invited to a two-day remote interview on February 4-5, 2021.
Facilities and Equipment:
Successful applicants will join our program and be mentored and supervised in research and clinical training by a wide variety of experts in the field, including faculty members, clinical physicists, physicians, dosimetrists, therapists, and engineers. Our training resources include an extensive array of equipment and facilities: state-of-the-art linear accelerators for IMRT, VMAT, SRS, SBRT, IGRT, and CBCT, two proton facilities, MR-linac, dedicated stereotactic facilities, including Cyberknife, dedicated TBI facility, dedicated image-guided brachytherapy facilities, IORT, 4D-CT, 4D-PET, and MRI simulation and imaging facilities.
Employer and Environment:
The Harvard Medical Physics Residency Program is supported by three major radiation oncology departments in the Boston area: Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center, Massachusetts General Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. There are additional academic resources available for further support and collaboration within the Boston vicinity as well as in other locations across the country and internationally.
Our hospitals are equal opportunity employers and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religious creed, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran or active military status, marital status, genetic information, and/or other status protected under law.
