Medical Physics Residency Admissions

Join the program!


Admissions
A position for one new resident is available starting July 1, 2019 at the University of Colorado Department of Radiation Oncology.  Applications are accepted solely through the Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP) until the deadline.  We participate in the MedPhys Match.
 
Every application is thoroughly reviewed by the Program Director and at least 3 other members of the Medical Physics Residency Education Committee.  Invitations for phone interviews are sent to selected individuals 1-3 weeks after the application deadline.  After phone interviews are conducted, invitations for on-site interviews are sent to selected individuals.
 
The on-site interview is a great time for our department to get to know the candidate, and for the candidate to get to know our department.  Candidates will meet with physics faculty, physician faculty, current residents, and the dosimetry team.  An example on-site interview schedule can be found here.
 
On the last day of the interviews, all interviewers meet to collectively generate the final rank order list, which will be submitted to the MedPhys Match Program.  We are committed to the Match and will fill our residency position through this program.
