Medical Physics Residency Programs - Overview

The two Medical Physics Residency Programs are Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP) Accredited programs offered by the Cross Cancer Institute Department of Medical Physics. The Cross Cancer Institute (CCI) is a provincially funded cancer center located in Edmonton , Alberta and is operated by Alberta Health Services. The Cross Cancer Institute (CCI) is located on the SW edge of the University of Alberta North Campus and is approximately two blocks from the University of Alberta Hospital (Walter C. Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre (WCM)). (see the Campus Map: and select the North Campus)

The goal of the Medical Physics Residency Programs is to provide training in the field of Medical Physics. Applicants are expected to have a graduate degree (CAMPEP Accredited - PhD preferred) in Medical Physics or a closely related field. Two programs are offered. Medical Physics Residents may pursue training in:

  • Radiation Oncology Physics or
  • Diagnostic Imaging Physics - which includes residencies in nuclear medicine physics, MR physics and diagnostic X-ray physics.
