The Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Physics Residency Program is a joint radiation oncology medical physics residency program between Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute and Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist’s Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The program will provide training in clinical radiation oncology physics consistent with the guidelines recommended by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program, Inc. (CAMPEP) and American Association of Physicist in Medicine (AAPM) Report No 249.

The program covers two geographic regions:

  • Charlotte Region
  • Winston-Salem Region

Each resident is primarily assigned to one of the two regions with select rotations occurring in the other region to take full advantage of the array of technology available across the organization.

This program received accreditation by Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP) in January 2023.
