Radiation Oncology Physics Admissions Process

Application Guidelines

Resident applications are accepted each fall, up through Dec. 1, for positions beginning the following July. Applications are accepted exclusively through the AAPM Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP). Application materials will be reviewed by the program directors and the Resident Selection Committee (consisting of all non-trainee physicists). Invitations to interview will be distributed (likely in January) to selected individuals.

After interviews are completed, the program directors will finalize a Rank Order List with the MedPhys Matching Program, administered by National Matching Services, Inc. All residency positions will be filled through the Match. The residency program will make an offer of employment to the matched candidate(s).

The screening and interview process is performed in accordance with the equal opportunity standards of both the University of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics.

Admission Requirements

The Radiation Oncology Physics Residency Program is a two-year, CAMPEP-accredited program designed for individuals with a graduate degree in medical physics, physics or engineering and who have graduated from a CAMPEP-accredited graduate program, successfully completed a CAMPEP-accredited certificate program or successfully completed the core didactic coursework identified by CAMPEP. We gladly welcome applicants with both MS and PhD degrees and we do not have a preference for one over the other.

Number of Residents

The Radiation Oncology Physics Residency Program is designed to enroll four residents concurrently at University Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. Two residents are scheduled to graduate from the program every June.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

We strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion. We encourage applications to our program from all qualified individuals regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

The UW School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself, but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. Additionally, our group takes great strides to ensure that the application review and interview process is as equitable and accessible as possible by conducting wholistic application reviews, providing implicit bias and interview etiquette training for all faculty, and providing open channels for candidates to request accommodations and give anonymous feedback.
