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.
