Health and Medicine: Radiation, Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology, Physics: Applied
Program Description: The Division of Medical Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, invites applications for positions in our CAMPEP-accredited clinical medical physics residency and fellowship program. Individuals will receive training in all essential aspects of clinical radiation oncology physics as outlined by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP), and required for American Board of Radiology (ABR) certification in Medical Physics. The 3-year fellowship commences on July 1, 2019, and also includes clinical research effort under the supervision of one of the faculty members. Qualified individuals should possess a recent Ph.D. in medical physics, experimental physics, or equivalent, and have a strong desire to thrive in a clinical environment as well as demonstrated ability to manage all aspects of an experimental research project, including coordination, data acquisition and analysis, software development and documentation. Excellent communication skills and the ability to interact with patients and other healthcare professionals are essential.
Application Process: Mayo Clinic Clinical Medical Physics Fellowship collects applications using the AAPM Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP). We are participating in the MedPhys Match and will only consider applicants that have registered with that program. You can enter your information into MPRAP whenever it is convenient, and your application can be submitted after obtaining your MedPhys Match registration number, which will be available in mid-October. The deadline for applications is Dec 17, 2018. Onsite interviews will be held in Rochester, MN, on February 22, 25, and March 1, 2019. Please see the MCSGME Radiation Oncology Specialty Programs website for more information about the program and application process.
Requirements: Ph.D. in medical physics or experimental physics (or equivalent); the desire to impact and improve patient care through your efforts in clinical medical physics; research skills including organization, data acquisition and analysis, software development and documentation; excellent communication skills, and the ability to interact with patients and other healthcare professionals.
Environment: The successful candidates will join Medical Physics Division with 20 Ph.D. faculty, 18 clinical physicists, 8 clinical fellows, 1 proton fellow, post doctoral fellows and computer support personnel. The Medical Physics Division supports all aspects of the clinical radiation oncology program, research and graduate education, at the Rochester campus of Mayo Clinic. This campus has 6 Varian TrueBeam linear accelerators, all with advanced image guidance and SBRT capabilities, one intra-op linear accelerator, an Elekta Perfexion Gammaknife unit, two VariSource HDR afterloaders, 6 CT simulators (2 dedicated to brachytherapy), and 1 MR scanner. Five satellite facilities each have 1-2 linear accelerators and CT-simulation capability. The fellowship also includes proton therapy training in a Hitachi ProBeat 4-gantry pencil beam scanning proton therapy facility.
Note to applicants requiring visa assistance: While Mayo Clinic is committed to recruiting the most talented workforce regardless of nationality or visa status, we can only offer visa assistance for individuals who meet H1-B visa requirements.
Mayo Clinic is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
