Under the general supervision of the Director of Medical Physics, direct supervision of Radiation Physicist III, and at the direction of the Radiation Oncologists, will assist in all aspects of clinical radiation physics, including quality assurance, radiation safety, treatment planning verification and implementation of new modalities. Performs necessary physics support for all aspects of therapy quality assurance including but not limited to: 3D and IMRT/VMAT (Intensity-Modulated Radiation therapy/Volumetric-Modulated Arc Therapy) treatment planning, HDR (High-Dose Rate), LDR (Low-Dose Rate), IGRT (Image-Guided Radiation Therapy), SRS/SBRT (Stereotactic Radiosurgery/Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy), IORT (Intraoperative Radiation Therapy), TBI (Total Body Irradiation), TSEI (Total Skin Electron Irradiation), DIBH (Deep Inspiration Breath-Hold), Gating, and Gamma Knife®.
Assists in quality assurance monitoring, loading and transportation of radioactive material. Performs quality management processes of the department including chart checks, dose calculations, radiation monitoring, and equipment calibrations. Maintains skills to assess and care for patients of all ages and disease sites. Provides support and assistance for other medical physics activities related to patient care and staff education. Participation in clinical trials and on-going research projects. May be involved in the didactic and clinical supervision of medical physics residents, medical physics students, radiation oncology residents, and dosimetry students. Performs related responsibilities as required.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: A master's degree or PhD in medical physics with the appropriate clinical training. ABR (American Board of Radiology) or equivalent certification is required and participation in MOC (maintenance of certification) if applicable.
