Clinical Medical Physics Residency Program

The residency program is a 3 year research and clinical training program at Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine, with one year dedicated to research. Core objectives include comprehensive, hands-on training in clinical therapy physics and preparation for the ABR board exams. Successful candidates will work with Mount Sinai's staff physicists covering a diverse array of specialties in the clinic, with the goal of becoming autonomous physicists capable of independent work at graduation.


At a minimum, applicants must have:

  • PhD in Physics or related discipline
    AND graduation from
  • A CAMPEP-accredited graduate program
  • A CAMPEP-accredited certificate program

Clinical Rotations

In order to graduate from the residency program, residents are required to complete the following 12 clinical rotations:

  1. Dosimetric systems
  2. Brachytherapy
  3. Linear Accelerator Acceptance Testing/Commissioning/Annual QA
  4. TG-51 Calibration and MU Calculations
  5. TPS Modeling
  6. Treatment Planning
  7. Imaging for Treatment Simulation
  8. Imaging for Treatment Verification
  9. Stereotactic Radiosurgery
  10. Special Procedures
  11. Radiation Safety/Shielding Design

Financial Support

Competitive salary and full benefits package will be provided to the successful candidate. Please refer to Mount Sinai Benefit for more details.

Current Residents

Tingyu Wang, M.S.
Tingyu received his Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before attending the University of Pennsylvania to get a Masters degree in Medical Physics. Advancing his mixed academic background in engineering and medicine, Tingyu is looking to apply his knowledge to daily clinical practices during his residency training as part of the Mount Sinai Radiation Oncology Team.

Charlotte Read, M.S.
Charlotte grew up near Ann Arbor, MI and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics from Brigham Young University, where she focused her thesis on the investigation of Fe3O4 nanoparticles using vibrating sample magnetometry and muon spin relaxation. Later, she pursued her Master of Science in Medical Physics at Duke University, where she focused on analyzing rare events and multi-object radiomics in medical imaging. Her work was accepted for the 2022 and 2023 American Association of Physicists in Medicine conferences and for publishing in peer-reviews journals including Journal of the American College of Radiology and Cancers. Beyond her academic interests, Charlotte enjoys spending quality time with her husband and friends, exploring new restaurants and places.

Jing Wang, Ph.D.
Jing earned her Ph.D. in Physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, focusing on exploring the thermal properties of copper sulfides through molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning. Later, she completed a certificate program in Medical Physics at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. Her academic pursuits have furnished her with a robust understanding of physics principles and endowed her with the proficiency to employ advanced AI techniques to improve clinical outcomes in radiotherapy. As a resident with the Mount Sinai Radiation Oncology Team, Jing aims to leverage and sharpen her expertise during clinical training.
