Welcome to WWMP Medical Physics Residency Program. Residents of this Program will experience clinical training in all aspects of radiation oncology physics. Upon completion of the program the resident will be well prepared for board certification and a professional career in radiation oncology.

Our residency program is accredited by CAMPEP as of 2017.

The WWMP Medical Physics Residency Program follows the Guidelines for Accreditation of Medical Physics Residency Programs, published by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program. Our program is a 30 month program.

The objective of the residency program is to train each resident to become familiar and minimally competent in all area of therapeutic radiological physics. Our emphasis is on excellence in patient care and treatments.

Resident competency is evaluated throughout the training. At the completion of the program the resident will be prepared to sit for the certification examination of the American Board of Radiology in Therapeutic Radiology Physics.



Clinical Area of Competency Include

  • Conventional linear accelerator operation, calibration and treatments.
  • Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRS, SBRT)
  • Cyber Knife, Tomotherapy, Gamma Knife
  • Treatment Planning (3D, IMRT, VMAT, TSE, TBI, 2D)
  • Brachytherapy (HDR & LDR)
  • Acceptance Testing and Commissioning (Linear Accelerators, HDR units, CT simulators, ancillary equipment, Treatment Planning Systems, US units for implants, dose calibrators, survey meters)
  • Quality Assurance for all major and ancillary equipment
  • Diagnostic radiological physics imaging pertinent to RT
  • Radiopharmaceutical therapy
  • Radiation Safety, Ethics, Professionalism, Compassion



Application Process

The World Wide Medical Physics Residency Program is a 30 month clinical training program covering all aspects of radiation oncology physics and meets the CAMPEP standards for a Radiation Oncology Physics Residency Curriculum. Our program accepts one resident per year with a maximum of three residents in the program at one time.  The World Wide Medical Physics residency handbook is available upon request. To request a copy, please email us at worldwidemedicalphysics@gmail.com.


​All residents entering the Medical Physics Residency Program are required to have a strong foundation in basic physics as documented by a master's degree from a accredited graduate program.

The application requires:

  • Personal information (name, address, contact information)
  • Please request an official application form.
  • ABR certification status
  • Disclosure of criminal behavior, academic violations, and/or licensure actions
  • Employment history
  • Military service history (if applicable)

          Official copies can be mailed to:                                                                                                                                         Medical Physics Residency Application                                                                                                                             World Wide Medical Physics, Inc.                                                                                                                                       26302 Thompson Road, Perrysburg, OH 43551

The recruitment of Medical Physics Residents is the function of the Admission Committee. The applications and related material are reviewed; the top ranked candidates are then contacted to initiate the interview process. Preference is given to local candidates. Candidates are invited to visit the facility for a formal interview. In addition, references are contacted by phone to supplement the recommendation letters, if needed. After completion of all interviews, the Committee meets to review the interview results and any other pertinent information regarding the applicants. The committee then internally ranks interviewees. Upon selection, offer letters are sent to successful candidates.
