To pursue a career in clinical Medical Physics, a two-year Residency must be served in a CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program.  A Radiation Oncology Physics Program is supported in the Department of Radiation Oncology.   An Imaging Physics Residency and a 2+1 Imaging Physics (2 years) + Nuclear Medicine Physics (1 year) is supported by the Department of Radiology.


The Radiology Physics positions, supported by University Hospital, and are advertised on the Stony Brook Job board when openings occur.  The Resident is a NY State employee and as such has a full benefits package including sick leave, vacation leave and medical benefits.  At any one time there are usually two Residents supported in Radiology Medial Physics.
