A Message from the Director, Medical Physics Division

Dr. Yu

Dear Prospective Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in the 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), which is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP).

During the two-year residency training, residents are expected to complete a comprehensive curriculum in therapeutic medical physics and to acquire experience in clinical services and research activities.

The Medical Physics Division has 14 clinical physicists, all of whom are dedicated to training residents in the field of radiation oncology physics.   Additionally,  our staff of dosimetrists, research assistants, administrative and information systems personnel and in-house engineers work together to provide educational support to ensure competency in all aspects of clinical medical physics.   Our goal is to mentor the next generation of exceptional clinical physicists who will ultimately become future leaders of the field.

We look forward to reviewing your completed application.
