A complete Diagnostic and Clinical Medical Physics services provider.


Medical Physics Residency Program
The Medical Physics Consulting Residency Program is based out of St Francis Hospital in Tulsa, OK The goal of the clinical medical physics residency program with Medical Physics Consulting is to prepare medical physics graduates to practice independently as certified medical physicists. Upon completion of the twenty-four months of focused clinical training, the graduates should have clinical experience in all aspects of radiation oncology physics practice and in-depth knowledge on maintaining and implementing clinical procedures, as well as establishing new treatment modalities in their clinic.​

Major Objectives of the Residency Program 

  1. To prepare the medical physics resident for certification in the field of radiation oncology physics by an appropriate certification board, such as American Board of Radiology (ABR).
  2. To provide in-depth training in all aspects of radiation oncology physics practice that will allow the graduates to immediately contribute to an elevated level of quality medical care for the radiation oncology patients, including improving the efficiency of clinical flow, implementing a novel treatment modality, and as initiating new treatment protocols in the clinic.
  3. The clinical residency training will be provided under the close supervision of experienced radiation oncology physicists at both sites. The residents will demonstrate competency in a range of topics through clinical performance in each rotation as well as end-of-rotation oral examinations. The residents will have the opportunity to participate in special clinical projects consisting of implementing new treatment procedures or integrating a novel technology in the state-of-the-art radiation oncology centers.

In addition, the wide varieties of clinical resources, equipment and special treatment procedures performed in the Medical Physics Consulting group assure that the medical physics residents receive well-rounded, hands-on, and frequently evaluated clinical training in radiation oncology physics. Medical physics residents are also encouraged to complete research projects related to clinical medical physics and submit abstracts for the national meeting such as AAPM (American Association of Physicists in Medicine) or ASTRO (American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology) for presentation. Medical Physics Consulting has been a clinically driven resource for radiation oncology practices across the Midwest for over 20 years. 

Training Rotations 

The medical physics residents are expected to successfully complete eight rotations focused on the following clinical topics: 

-CT (Computed Tomography) Simulation, Outside Imaging, Image Guidance and Surface Guided Radiation Therapy 

-3D External beam treatment planning for Photons and Electrons 

-IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) / VMAT (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy) treatment planning including patient specific verification 

-Low-Dose Rate (LDR) brachytherapy program implementation, treatment planning, delivery, and quality assurance 

-High-Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy program implementation, treatment planning, delivery, and quality assurance 

-Radiation Safety, Regulations and shielding of medical facilities 

-Linear Accelerator Commissioning and Acceptance Testing 

-Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) 

-Special procedures - Total Body Irradiation (TBI) and Total Skin Electron Irradiation (TSEI) 

-Weekly and initial physics chart check for all modalities 

-Acceptance, Commissioning, and routine Quality Assurance 

-Education, Ethics and Professionalism 

Structure of the Program 

Each rotation is under the close supervision of experienced medical physicists and is three months in length. Residents are expected to discuss their hands-on clinical progress with their mentor(s) on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Residents will also meet with either the assistant residency program director or the program director and discuss their progress and clinical responsibility monthly. Residents are expected to keep a log documenting all their clinical and didactic activities, attendance at conferences or tumor boards which is reviewed during their meeting with the assistant residency program director or the program director.

Residents will be expected to attend weekly treatment planning conferences, weekly tumor boards, and actively participate in weekly physics and physician's journal clubs and other educational opportunities. Rotation specific recommended reading of medical physics guidelines detailed in AAPM TG (Task Group) reports, RTOG (Radiation Therapy Oncology Group) protocols, relevant journal articles or medical physics books chapters are assigned by the mentor faculty physicists. Following the completion of a rotation, the resident will present a presentation on the specific rotation topic and will be evaluated by the faculty physicists through a series of oral examination questions.

The two years of training are primarily located at St Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Outside rotations will be added as available to enhance the base of experiences. The requirements for completion of the residency are demonstrated ability to perform independently all tasks recognized as fundamental clinical physics duties, as outlined in Task Group 249 of the AAPM.
