The Medical Physics Resident is a clinical training position for those who have obtained proper graduate degrees in medical physics.
The length of the training program is two years.
The training is divided into clinical rotations over the two years of residency, as detailed in the Residency Program Handbook.

One supervisor is assigned to oversee the progress for each rotation and will coordinate with other staff physicists and departmental staff to cover the training topics.
The resident will work under the supervision of a qualified medical physicist for each rotation.
Clinical activities are inclusive of, but not limited to, monthly, daily, and annual QA, machine commissioning, treatment planning, dosimetry, chart checking, SRS, SRT, SBRT, IGRT, Brachytherapy, imaging technology, and radiation safety.
