RADIATION ONCOLOGY PHYSICS is an academic specialization of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.  There are 10 full and Adjunct professors, 8 graduate students, 2 residents and 2 fellows.  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 experiences and fourth-year projects.  Our thesis-based M.Sc. and Ph.D. 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.
