Comprehensive Medical Physics Training

The goal of the Clinical Medical Physics Residency Program at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, is to prepare individuals to practice independently as a certified medical physicist in radiation oncology. Clearly, individuals can be experts in multiple areas of medical physics; however, the graduate should have the experience and knowledge base necessary to implement and maintain routine clinical procedures and establish novel techniques.

Program Goals and Objectives

Major objectives of the Clinical Medical Physics Residency Program include:

  • Preparing the graduate for certification in the specialty of medical physics (therapeutic, i.e. radiation oncology) by an appropriate certification board
  • Providing a broad-based and in-depth training that will permit the graduate to immediately contribute to the quality of medical care received by the radiation oncology patient

Training will take place under the close supervision of experienced radiation oncology physicists. The program emphasizes all areas of training and experience that will be needed by a radiation oncology medical physicist in a state-of-the-art treatment facility and exposes them to management of a single accelerator community-based free-standing facility.
