RADIATION ONCOLOGY PHYSICS is an academic specialization of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. There are 12 full and Adjunct professors, 12 graduate students, and 2 residents. We are physically located at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, a fully equipped tertiary cancer treatment treating more than 3000 patients a year.
Our academic specialization trains students to work as Radiation Oncology Physicists in clinical, academic and industrial applications. At the undergraduate level, we offer summer research (funding dependent) experiences and fourth-year projects. Our thesis-based MSc and PhD graduate programs combine an intensive didactic program with cutting edge research and hands-on clinical work. We also offer a two-year clinical residency program, a Post-doctoral Diploma in Radiation Oncology Physics. We have recently implemented a CAMPEP-accredited Post-doctoral certificate in Radiation Oncology Physics for physicists wishing to transition to a career in medical physics.
