The Physics Postdoctoral Fellowship program began with the arrival of Dr. X. Allen Li to the Department of Radiation Oncology in 2004. Dr. Li saw the need for the training of postdoctoral fellows in the area of medical physics and recruited the first physics postdoctoral fellow to train in the Department of Radiation Oncology. Past Postdoctoral fellows performed in-depth research as well as received comprehensive clinical training. The Postdoctoral Fellowship program has had nine fellows graduate from the program.
2009 began the evolution of two separate medical physics training programs, the continuation of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and the creation of the new Physics Residency Program. While the Physics Residency Program is a three-year program with a focus on clinical training along with two research semesters, the Physics Postdoctoral Program is for PhD candidates who would like to focus primarily on research with limited and optional clinical physics training. Fellowship positions vary dependent on available research funding. Postdoctoral fellows completing appropriate research projects may apply to the Physics Residency Program.
