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. 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 residency commences on July 1, 2020, and also includes clinical research effort under the supervision of one of the faculty members.
Application Process: This program participates in the MedPhys Match and will only consider applicants who have registered with that program and apply through the AAPM Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP). You can enter your information into MP-RAP 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 December 17, 2019. Onsite interviews will be held in Rochester, MN, on February 24, 28, and March 2, 2020. Please see the MCSGME Radiation Oncology Specialty Programs website for more information about the program and application process.
Requirements: A 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 the Division of Medical Physics with 20 Ph.D. faculty, 18 clinical physicists, 9 clinical residents, 1 proton clinical fellow, postdoctoral 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 Gamma Knife 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 residency also includes proton therapy training in a 4-gantry pencil beam scanning proton therapy facility (Hitachi ProBeat). The program offers medical physics courses to residents as needed to remediate any deficits in graduate coursework.
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.
Additional Salary Information: Salary consistent with NIH PGY1-3, medical, dental, and other benefits available.
