Welcome Message from our Division Director

Welcome to the Division of Radiation Medical Physics, a branch within the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University. Our division is composed of medical physics faculty, medical dosimetrists, engineers, staff, graduate students, and researchers of different levels. We are concerned with three areas of activity: clinical service and consultation, research and development, and teaching. Our vision is to be the world’s premier program committed to excellence and innovation in clinical practice, scientific research, technological development, and education.



In the Spotlight

2016 Medical Physics Research Summit

The Medical Physics Research Summit was held on February 20, 2016 at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA. The summit focused on research activities within the Department of Radiation Oncology's Medical Physics Division, covering a wide spectrum of concentratrions from basic research to clinical applications. The focus of the retreat was to build stronger connections between researchers, clinical physicists, and trainees. With this event, we are able foster new collaborative research efforts between the Cancer Center, 1050/1070 Arastradero, Center for Clinical Sciences Research (CCSR), Physics Outreach, and Stanford Cancer Center South Bay. We covered the broad range of research activities occuring within our division, including clinical, translational, basic science, and engineering projects.

Thank you to all who attended, participated, and contributed to making this a wonderful event!
