A Message From the Enterprise Vice Chair & Director of Medical Physics

Dear Prospective Resident

Thank you for your interest in the CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics Residency program in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Thomas Jefferson University. Our medical physics residency is a two-year clinical training program (PGY 1-2), where residents will be a part of a collegiate and dynamic team, become immersed in a wide breadth of clinical procedures, and be involved in cutting-edge research.

During the two-year residency, residents complete a comprehensive curriculum in therapeutic medical physics, acquire experience in clinical services, and participate in research activities. Clinical training includes exposure to a wide array of clinical equipment, from multiple vendors as well as numerous advanced delivery platforms. Residents will participate in an active brachytherapy service and cutting-edge theranostics program. The department has significant expansion plans, and residents will get great opportunities to commission new hardware, software, and clinical processes.

Jefferson’s 22 faculty members lead a highly impactful and diverse research program. The group currently has ongoing funded projects by the National Cancer Institute, vendor funded research, as well as Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center funding. Residents will be encouraged to get involved in research programs led by the Jefferson faculty. Examples of ongoing projects include physicist-led clinical trials, radiomics, MR-guided radiotherapy, radiation damage modeling, and quality and safety research.

Our program embraces rigor in clinical education, involvement in seminal research, diversity in both faculty and trainees, and stresses the importance of work-life balance. Our goal is to mentor the next generation of exceptional physicists who will go on to become future leaders of the field.

We look forward to reviewing your completed application.

Sincerely,

Yevgeniy (Jenia) Vinogradskiy, PhD
