Coronavirus Pandemic


The UC San Diego Medical Physics Residency program will be holding interviews on Jaunary 10 and January 13 for a July 1, 2020 start date.

The objective of our residency program is to provide competency-based clinical training in radiation oncology physics within a structured clinical environment. Residents participate in clinical physics duties under the supervision of board-certified medical physics mentors. At the conclusion of the program, residents will be able to demonstrate competency in all specialty areas of radiation oncology physics and will be prepared to sit for the certification examination of the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiologic Physics.

Physics residency training at UC San Diego is a two-year program. First-year residents work closely with medical physicists responsible for clinical tasks. A major goal during the second year of residency is to develop independent thinking and confidence in clinical decision making. One to four months will be spent on each clinical service to ensure adequate experience in all clinical physics activities.

The UC San Diego Medical Physics Residency Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP).

Derek Brown, PhD and Titania Juang, PhD are Program Director and Associate Program Director of the residency. For detailed information regarding our residency, including a further description of the program, please view the Medical Physics Residency Brochure or contact Jessica Bazo, Program Administrator, at or 858-822-0941
