The Residency Program is of 2-years' duration and provides the resident with clinical experience and theoretical knowledge in all aspects of modern radiation oncology physics. An important objective of the program is to prepare the resident for the professional examination and licensure process in the specialty of Radiation Oncology Physics. The Residency Program consists of four clinical rotations and four didactic courses.

Minimum requirement for admission is M.Sc. degree in Physics; however, the preferred candidate will have a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree in Medical Physics from a CAMPEP-accredited educational program.

The Residency Program received its initial accreditation from CAMPEP (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc) in 2005, and was re-accredited in 2010 & 2015. Current accreditation is effective until December 2020.
