Medical Physics Residency 

The clinical practice of the Stanford University School of Medicine (SU SoM) Department of Radiation Oncology is centered in the Stanford Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC), a National Cancer Institute designated cancer center.

The Stanford Radiation Oncology Physics Residency is structured as a two-year therapeutic program of progressive, supervised clinical training in all areas of radiation oncology physics, with the purpose of enabling a resident to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to practice radiation oncology physics independently and gain board certification. An optional elective third year of research may be scheduled after the two fully-clinical training years for a clinically related project by agreement with and under supervision of a member of the radiation oncology physics faculty. The additional year is intended to provide clinically trained residents time to advance a translational research project, with consequent opportunities for accomplishments to support a career goal of being a clinician-scientist.
