MPHY 245 - Practicum in Radiation Therapy Physics


Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
A supervised hands-on training experience in the practical aspects of radiation oncology physics in the clinical radiation medicine department of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Co-requisite: MPHY 230 . Open only to students enrolled in the MS program in medical physics  with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in course work in medical physics or permission of program director. May be repeated once for credit. Practicum meets 10-13 hours per week. Pass/Fail grade only. A student enrolled in a MPHY 245, who has not taken the licensure examination or met experience requirements to practice medical physics, must apply for a limited permit to practice medical physics in New York state. A limited permit authorizes the student to practice as a medical physicist under the supervision of a currently registered New York state-licensed medical physicist, and only in the supervisor’s specialty area. When applying for a limited permit, it is the applicant’s responsibility to complete the New York State Certification of Supervision Section I, to forward it to his or her prospective supervisor, and to ensure that the prospective supervisor fully completes the Certification of Supervision Section II. There is a fee for the limited license, which expires two years from the date of issue, and may be renewed for a total of six years. (Formerly Practicum in Radiation Oncology.)
