RESIDENCY POSITION IN MEDICAL IMAGING PHYSICS
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is one of the world's premier cancer centers, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The blending of research with patient care is at the heart of everything we do. The institution is a Comprehensive Cancer Center whose purposes are the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians, and other health care workers.
An opening is now available for a July start for a Medical Imaging Physics residency appointment in the Department of Medical Physics. The MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in Medical Imaging Physics involves clinical training in all aspects of clinical imaging. This position is for our 2-year clinical training route. The minimum requirement for admission to the program include an earned doctorate or M.S. in Medical Physics from a CAMPEP accredited program, or an earned doctorate in physics, engineering, or similar scientific discipline with a CAMPEP master's degree or CAMPEP Certificate.
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over seventy faculty physicists and computer scientists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer. Medical Physicists in the diagnostic imaging physics track are actively engaged in several research programs that include molecular, MR and CT imaging as well as the new radionuclide therapies called theranostics. Examples include advanced MR acquisition techniques, motion correction, MR fingerprinting, artificial intelligence, and deep learning for image reconstruction in all imaging modalities. MSK is a World leader in imaging and theranostic research and supports one of the largest pre-clinical small animal core facilities in the United States that includes MR, PET, SPECT, CT, ultrasound imaging equipment that provides a conduit for the translation of experimental techniques into clinical trials. Additional highlights include grant-funded research in quantitative MRI, hypoxia imaging, imaging drug delivery, and radionuclide dosimetry.
Diagnostic, Nuclear and MRI Medical Physicists play a key role in supporting all imaging devices throughout the MSK enterprise, maintaining and harmonizing acquisition protocols, troubleshooting image artifacts, and maintaining equipment accreditation and regulatory compliance. We support well over 500 imaging instruments that include 40 CT scanners, 21 MR scanners, and 17 PET scanners and work with radiologists in the selection of new imaging equipment and the implementation of new imaging techniques. Since diagnostic images are at the core of cancer diagnosis and response assessment, we have a strong philosophy to ensure that all imaging equipment throughout the network is operating at the optimum performance, in accordance with the overall mission of MSKCC to advance the state of cancer care.
Details of the residency program can be found at https://www.mskcc.org/hcp-education-training/residencies/medical-imaging-physics-residency. The successful candidate will be compensated according to the MSKCC residency standard as PGY-3.
