Hybrid Program Description
Combined Post-Doctoral Research and Residency Training in Imaging Physics
A novel new training opportunity has been created for an outstanding young medical physics graduate to pursue both residency training and research in the Department of Imaging Physics at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Over a 3-4 year period, the successful candidate will spend up to 2 years of full-time research in a mutually agreed upon area of biomedical imaging and complete 2 years of full-time CAMPEP-accredited residency training to meet the clinical experience requirements of the American Board of Radiology for national board certification.
A Ph.D. or equivalent degree from a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program is required. We are looking for highly motivated young scientists that aspire to be among the best of the next generation of academic medical physicists working in the area of medical imaging. The successful candidate will be appointed as a Medical Physics Fellow to recognize the outstanding nature of the individuals and the educational program.
Priority for access to physical resources, including access to imaging and computational systems, and other development support will be provided including travel to scientific meetings and training opportunities. The successful candidate will be matched with a senior medical physicist mentor with a mutual research interest.
