Thank you for your interest in the accredited radiation oncology physics residency program at UCSF. As a hospital-based service with a major academic role within the UCSF School of Medicine, our department considers resident training its most important academic function.
The Medical Physics Division of the Department of Radiation Oncology has a strong medical physics residents education program. The department has three facilities; one at Parnassus, one at Mount Zion, and one at Mission Bay. The residency program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP).
The CAMPEP-accredited radiation oncology physics residency at UCSF is a two-year training program (PGY 1-2). Residents will be expected to have completed a comprehensive curriculum in Medical Physics according to the CAMPEP admissions criteria (www.campep.org).
The objective of the residency program is to provide training in radiation oncology physics in a structured clinical environment for individuals wishing to practice professional radiation oncology physics. Residents will be trained in all areas of radiation oncology physics by board certified therapeutic radiological physicists.
