Clinical Medical Physics Residency
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The Mount Sinai residency program is a two-year CAMPEP-accredited clinical training program at Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine. Core objectives include comprehensive, hands-on training in clinical therapy physics and preparation for the ABR board exams. Successful candidates will work with Mount Sinai's staff physicists covering a diverse array of specialties in the clinic, with the goal of becoming autonomous physicists capable of independent work at graduation.
At a minimum, applicants must have:
A Master or PhD in Physics or related discipline
AND graduated from
A CAMPEP-accredited graduate program
A CAMPEP-accredited certificate program
In order to graduate from the residency program, residents are required to complete the following 12 clinical rotations:
Linear Accelerator Acceptance Testing/Commissioning/Annual QA
TG-51 Calibration and MU Calculations
Imaging for Treatment Simulation
Imaging for Treatment Verification
Radiation Safety/Shielding Design
Proton Therapy Rotation
