Medical Physics Residency
NYU Langone’s Medical Physics Residency is a two-year program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP). Designed for those with an MS, PhD, or CAMPEP-accredited certificate program in medical physics, the program’s objective is to provide residents with clinical and professional training in all aspects of therapeutic medical physics.
Our residents receive training at three different locations in New York City: NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, Tisch Hospital, and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn. The program is run by the Department of Radiation Oncology. Our faculty include internationally recognized physician–scientists and physicists who train residents to be leaders in the field and prepare them for careers in a clinical, industry, or academic setting.
As a resident, you train on the latest medical equipment and develop proficiency in a range of radiation therapies and quality assurance procedures, from conventional to cutting edge. Our residents learn advanced techniques including stereotactic body radiation therapy using a linear accelerator or CyberKnife®, intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery with a Gamma Knife® Icon™, total body irradiation, four-dimensional CT, and a full range of image-based brachytherapy. In addition to clinical training, you are given the opportunity to build skills associated with other major aspects of professional practice, including teaching and research.
