The Stanford University Physics Residency Program is a therapeutic program designed to provide broad, in-depth training for qualified individuals in the principles and modern practice of clinical radiation oncology physics. The goals of the program are to teach residents the ethical practice of full service, high quality clinical radiation oncology physics, and how it is delivered in cooperation with physicians, nurses, radiation therapists, and other health professionals in a structured and regulated environment dedicated to patient care.

The ultimate educational goal is to qualify the resident so that, at the end of training, she or he has sufficient knowledge and experience to engage in the independent practice of medical physics.  A special goal of the Stanford program is to select and train individuals with the potential to become clinician scientists who could contribute in a leadership role to the advancement of the radiation oncology physics specialty through engaging in clinical service, teaching, and the pursuit of scientific investigations.

We welcome all qualified individuals interested in developing a career in the exciting and rewarding field of medical physics to apply to our residency program.
