Medical Physics Residency

Medical Physics Residency Program

The Medical Physics Residency Training Program at the University of Miami started in 2013. It is the only Medical Physics Residency in the South Florida Region. The residency training program resides in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Sylvester Cancer Center. This is a two-year program and is designed for individuals with a Ph.D. degree in medical physics, experimental physics, engineering or a closely related discipline, who are interested in careers in Radiation Oncology Medical Physics. The overall goal of our residency program is to provide our residents hands-on clinical training and experiences in all aspects of radiation oncology physics to provide excellent patient care and prepare them for American Board of Radiology (ABR) board certification. The program is primarily clinical and is currently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP). Our program accepts applicants from both CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics Programs and from non-Medical Physics Programs. However, the applicants must complete the required didactic courses identified in AAPM Report 197S, The Essential Medical Physics Didactic Elements for Physicists Entering the Profession through an Alternative Pathway, prior to apply to the program.
