The Medical Physics Department at Grand River Regional Cancer Centre (GRRCC) is recruiting for a Medical Physics Resident. This is a two year training program for medical physicists supporting radiation oncology. The successful applicant will receive hands-on training covering all aspects of clinical radiation oncology physics, including radiation dosimetry, external beam treatment planning, brachytherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, radiation safety, image-guided radiation therapy, and quality assurance of all radiation therapy equipment. Residents are also expected to conduct research and to be active participants in teaching. Successful completion of the residency program will be determined by examination at the end of the two year term. At the completion of the program, the resident will have the knowledge and experience required to apply for clinical certification by the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine (CCPM).
