Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the world’s premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The blending of research with patient care is at the heart of everything we do. The institution is a Comprehensive Cancer Center whose purposes are the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians and other health care workers.
An opening is now available for an August/September start for a Therapeutic Medical Physics residency appointment in the Department of Medical Physics. The MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Therapeutic Medical Physics involves clinical training all aspects of clinical radiation therapy. This position is for our 2-year clinical training route. Minimum requirement for admission to the program include: an earned doctorate in medical physics from a CAMPEP accredited program or an earned doctorate physics, engineering or similar scientific discipline with a CAMPEP master’s degree or CAMPEP certificate.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists and computer scientists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer. MSKCC has a large, cutting edge program in all aspects of radiation oncology physics that seeks to improve the clinical effectiveness of radiation therapy in partnership with radiation oncologists, radiologists and other medical professionals. Many new programs in radiation therapy research and development are ongoing, including: the development and clinical use of predictive models (tumor control and normal tissue complication probability) in treatment planning, improved treatment planning optimization algorithm, integration of MR and PET imaging into radiotherapy decision making and treatment planning, 4D imaging and motion management, and the development of informatics-based and adaptive radiotherapy processes (www.mskcc.org/departments/medical-physics). In 2019, MSK enterprise-wide radiation and medical physics resources will include twenty-nine linear accelerators, one MR-Linac, six HDR units, CT, PET/CT and MRI simulators, and state of the art inter- and intra-fractional imaging and motion management capabilities. We are also partnered with the New York Proton Center, that houses one cyclotron, three rotational gantry treatment rooms, one fixed beam treatment room, one future research beam room, related PTEV support service spaces, PET/CT, two CTs, two MRIs, related clinical support space. We have a strong philosophy that all facilities will provide outstanding treatment quality as well as contribute to the overall mission of MSKCC to advance the state of cancer care.
At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes.
For the 28th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We are proud to be on Becker’s Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2018, as well as one of Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Best Place to Work for 2018. We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
