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.
