Physics Residency Program Information

The Medical Physics Residency Program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus started in 2012 and is the first in the Rocky Mountain region.  The residency is a two-year program that emphasizes professional and clinical quality in radiation oncology physics.  Residents are expected to become an integral part of the Department of Radiation Oncology performing clinical duties while interacting closely with the entire faculty and staff.  



The Medical Physics Residency Program provides structured didactic and hands-on training in all the broad areas of clinical radiation oncology physics.  The goal of the program is to prepare the graduate for the board certification examination and a professional career in radiation therapy. Comprehensive training and experience is provided in the areas of patient setup and simulation, clinical dosimetry, treatment planning, linac calibration and quality assurance, high and low dose rate brachytherapy, IMRT, VMAT, SBRT, SRS, imaging in radiotherapy, special procedures, and radiation safety.
