Medical Physics Education

At Thomas Jefferson University, one of our three founding mission goals is to educate future physicians, nurses, scientists, and allied health professionals, who will take a leadership role in the development of healthcare reform. Our mission is achieved through shared values:

  • Excellence and innovation
  • Integrity and respect
  • Teamwork and communication

The Department of Radiation Oncology offers two dynamic and comprehensive residency programs. As a hospital-based service with a major academic role within the medical college, our department considers resident training its most important academic function.

The Medical Physics Residency program is directed toward providing a two-year program of progressive, supervised clinical training for graduates of medical physics, traditional physics, and closely related fields. The objective of the residency program is to provide training in radiation oncology physics in a structured clinic environment for individuals wishing to practice professional radiation oncology physics. Faculty physicists provide instruction in all modes of radiation oncology physics: megavoltage photon-and electron-beam therapy, interstitial and intracavitary radioactive-source implantations, stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy, intensity modulation radiation therapy, and the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radioactive isotopes.
