College of
Health Sciences

To apply, you must have graduated from a Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP) accredited graduate program or have completed a CAMPEP-accredited certificate program before starting your residency.

Geisinger’s Medical Physics program is a two-year therapy-based program that accepts applications through American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP).

Your residency will begin the first week in July. Applications must be fully completed and will be accepted within the time frame set forth in the MP-RAP. Geisinger participates in the MedPhys Match program offered through National Matching Services.

No preference is given to either MS or PhD candidates.

Application process

After the application deadline, the program directors will do a cursory review to be sure everything is in order. Incomplete applications or candidates who haven’t graduated from a CAMPEP-accredited graduate or certificate program will not be considered.

Two physicists will review and score each application. Scores will be averaged and ranked. If yours is among the top-ranked applications, you’ll receive an email with a link for a 20- to 30-minute virtual interview with the program directors, physics staff and current residents. After the interview, we’ll complete evaluations and assign you a score, which will be averaged and ranked.

We’ll select three to five top-ranked applications. If yours is among them, you’ll receive an email inviting you to participate in a second virtual interview, this time with the steering committee, which includes chief dosimetrist, chief therapists, operations manager, a physician and the director of physics, as well as the program directors and current residents. We’ll then review and rank candidates as outlined above.

The steering committee will determine the final ranking order to submit to the MedPhys Match program. Immediately following the posting of the MedPhys Match results toward the end of March, the program director will call the matched applicant to welcome them to the Geisinger team.
