The physics division gathers professional (faculty (12), hospital physicists (4), dosimetrists (6), tech/eng (2)) and students (residents (4), PhD candidates (4), postdoctoral fellows (4), etc.)
The qualified medical physicists are responsible for all aspects of the use of radiation delivery devices in the treatment of cancer. This includes routine clinical coverage, setting up new equipment, running quality assurance programs, and developing new treatment techniques. We are also actively involved in teaching and training of highly specialized personnel. We provide formal teachings to MD and physics residents, and supervise graduate students in medical physics and bio-engineering.
Our physics faculty are also research scientists internationally recognized as experts in their fields. They are tasked with the goal to develop innovative treatment techniques and conduct clinical research in areas directly related to patient safety, quality, and efficiency.
