Health and Medicine: Radiation, Medical Physics: Radiation Oncology, Physics: Applied
The Division of Medical Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN 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, 2018, 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 (MPRAP). 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, 2017. Onsite interviews will be held in Rochester, MN, on Feb 16, 23, and 26. Please see the MSGME 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 a Medical Physics Division with 17 Ph.D. faculty, 22 clinical physicists, 8 clinical fellows, post doctoral fellows and computer support personnel. The Medical Physics Division supports all aspects of the Mayo Clinic Rochester clinical radiation oncology program, research and graduate education. The main site in Rochester, MN 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 of them dedicated to brachytherapy). Five satellite facilities each have 1-2 linear accelerators and CT-simulation capability. A 4-gantry pencil beam scanning proton therapy facility started treating patients in June 2015.
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.
Mayo Clinic is the first and largest integrated group practice in the world. Specialists from every medical specialty work together to care for patients, joined by common systems and a philosophy of “the needs of the patient come first.” More than 2,500 physicians and scientists and 42,000 allied health staff work at the original clinic in Rochester, MN, and newer clinics in Jacksonville, FL, and Arizona. Collectively, the three clinics treat more than half a million people each year.
