Grad Student Involvement
From Human Oncology
UW-Madison Radiation Oncology Physics Procedures and Quality Management Program
- Student Teams Section
The Student Teams Section of the “UW Radiation Oncology Physics Procedure and QM Program” is way to involve current graduate students in the Department of Medical Physics in clinical physics activities in the Department of Human Oncology. Students gain valuable experience while actively participating in clinical activities at many of our sites. Students do not receive any credit or financial compensation for their involvement. The program is divided into “teams” of students who work under the direct supervision of a faculty and/or staff physicists at either the UW Main campus, East, Beloit, Freeport, or Johnson Creek clinics. The teams are composed of junior and senior students, with the more senior student training the newer team members.
The general activities include routine monthly quality assurance (QA), patient specific QA and some involvement in clinical research projects. Please click on an individual Team (Student Teams, Team Freeport-Beloit, Team Johnson Creek) to learn more about the specific activities associated with each group. Participation in the program requires a minimum 6-month commitment. Many students stay involved for one year. The weekly time commitment ranges from 4-6 hours per week. There is a general application for all Teams.
