The Duke University residency program in Radiation Oncology Physics has been granted accreditation from CAMPEP through December 31, 2013. The objective of the Residency Program is to train individuals with medical physics and related education to practice professional radiation oncology physics. The program will provide comprehensive structured education and training in a clinical environment. Residents, under the supervision of board-certified medical physicists, participate in the clinical duties of a radiation oncology physicist. The resident will be, upon completion of the program, competent in radiation oncology physics practice and implementation of new technology, and prepared to sit for the certification examination of the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiological Physics.
The Program is supervised by the Director of Radiation Physics, Fang- Fang Yin, Ph.D, and with the oversight of the chair of Radiation Oncology, Christopher Willett, M.D. Two associate directors oversee the daily operations: Shiva Das, Ph.D. for academic affairs and Haijun Song, Ph.D. for clinical training.
The department of radiation oncology is one of the five sponsoring departments to the Medical Physics Graduate Program at Duke. Through this affiliation, the resident is arranged to take didactic courses in radiation therapy and imaging.
