Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine, offers highly-competitive residency programs in all aspects of medicine. Ranked among the top hospitals nationally and regionally by U.S. News & World Report, our institution has been at the forefront of medical innovation for more than 100 years, consistently breaking ground with innovative, new treatments, procedures and approaches to patient care, with a focus on producing stellar outcomes and raising the bar for medical centers in the region—and around the world. 

Montefiore is comprised of four hospitals located within three main campuses as well 130 ambulatory care offices throughout the Bronx and Westchester County. Our unique, logistical landscape allows residents the opportunity to experience a unique combination of inpatient and outpatient experiences, with exposure to all types of pathology. More important, it sets a solid foundation for an outstanding educational and training experience.

Why Medical Physics Residents Choose Montefiore

The Department of Radiation Oncology’s Medical Physics Residency is a two year Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP) approved training program, designed for candidates who are interested in careers in clinical radiation oncology physics. The Medical Physics Residency Program, in a sub-specialty of Therapeutic Radiologic Physics, provides structured training and progress assessment in all aspects of clinical radiation oncology physics under supervision of board certified medical physicists.

Objectives of the medical physics residency program:

  • Provide in-depth professional training and comprehensive exposure in science and technology of therapeutic radiologic physics in a structured clinical environment.
  • Enhance critical thinking and problem solving skills regarding clinical practice decision making.
  • Develop resident competency in codes of ethics in professional practice.
  • Facilitate understanding of the topics from the study guides of the American Board of Medical Physics and the American Board of Radiology.

Upon completion of the program, medical physics residents will be competent in all areas of therapeutic radiologic physics and prepared to qualify for the certification examination of the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiology Physics.

Become a Part of Our Legacy of Excellence

The successful applicant will join a team of six faculty/clinical board-certified physicists, seven radiation oncologists, Medical Physics residents, and five dosimetrists in the Department of Radiation Oncology. 

The Medical Physics Residency Program encourages candidates with a MS or PhD degree in medical physics from CAMPEP approved graduate programs to apply.

All candidates are required to obtain a New York State limited permit license prior to starting residency. Positions, details, and other requirements are offered via the AAPM website.
