Residency Program

Our two-year, CAMPEP-accredited residency program combines practical clinical training in therapy physics with a strong background in radiation safety. The course is designed for candidates with graduate degrees in medical physics or relevant physics sciences interested in careers in radiation therapy physics.

CAMPEP-ACCREDITED

Two-Year Residency Program

Our staff is highly motivated to aid in the process of developing successful physics residents by providing plenty of opportunities for one-on-one faculty to resident interaction.

With a unique focus on radiation safety and regulatory compliance, Versant Physics offers its residents experience and training as a MRSO, in addition to attending a MRSO training course. Upon successful completion of this program, the resident will receive a certificate of completion from Versant Physics, as well as MRSO training certification. The program is intended to qualify the resident to apply for examination by the American Board of Radiology for certification as a therapeutic radiological physicist.

Work in operating clinical environments with industry experts.

Get a Medical Radiation Safety Officer (MRSO) training certificate.

Participate in research projects, practical training and clinical education.

What Will You Learn?

During the 2-year program, the resident will take the following rotations:

  • Radiation safety & radiation Therapy Overview
  • Basic clinical physics support
  • Simulation & imaging in radiation therapy
  • Linac & Simulator QA
  • Basic External Beam Treatment Planning
  • Advanced External Beam Treatment Planning
  • LDR Brachytherapy
  • SRS/SBRT
  • HDR Brachytherapy
  • Equipment specification, acceptance & commissioning
  • Special procedures
  • Facility design & shielding
  • Comprehensive quality assurance in radiation therapy

Residents will be encouraged to actively participate in the following:

  • All radiation oncology departmental conferences & seminars
  • Regular group physics meetings
  • Local and chapter journal club
 

Physics residents will be encouraged to develop research projects with faculty during their second year in particular areas of interest. These clinical studies will be presented to and reviewed by the full faculty. It is expected that the results of these projects would be presented at a scientific meeting and developed into a publication.

Permits

THE PERMISSION SYSTEM FOR INVENTORY TRACKING, MACHINE MANAGEMENT & EQUIPMENT CATALOG MODULES

Permit Profile

Each permit has a dedicated profile of information that includes authorized personnel, radioactive material, machines, and devices. Permit conditions, completed audits, and forms are also found on this profile.

Authorized Condition Database

Create and view authorized conditions included on permits. Previously created authorized conditions are listed with their code, category, and description.

Permit Enforcement

Information specified on a permit not only serves as a record of that permit, but also controls what can be added to other modules. The location, owner and type of radioactive materials, machines, and equipment can be enforced by permits.

Permit Audits

Perform permit audits, mail the results to relevant personnel, and track responses to non-compliances.
