The Medical Physics Residency Program in Therapeutic Medical Physics under the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Huntsman Cancer Institute is a two-year training program, which is designed to provide clinical radiation oncology medical physics training. Applying candidates are required to complete the following:

  • Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP) accredited graduate degree OR

  • A doctorate degree in a closely related field of study along with sufficient coursework to comply with the CAMPEP alternative pathway for entrance into a CAMPEP medical physics residency program.

The residency program has a goal of preparing targeted candidates for clinical service in medical physics and being certified by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) in medical physics.

The Medical Physics Residency Program at the University of Utah began in July 2016 and is CAMPEP accredited.

The residency program is designed to comply with guidelines recommended by CAMPEP and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) as published in AAPM Report No. 249 (2013).
