Lectures & Seminars
Collins Lecture Series
World-renowned speakers giving visionary presentations about topics loosely related to radiation oncology.
Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Courses
Courses taught by our faculty at Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology. Upcoming courses with Brian Winey, PhD and Jan Schuemann, PhD (Spring 2021):
- HST.531 Medical Physics of Proton Therapy: Introduction into advanced techniques such as laser acceleration and dielectric wall acceleration.
- HST.533 Medical Imaging in Radiation Therapy: Introduction into imaging concepts and applications used throughout radiation therapy workflows, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and computed tomography (CT).
Karen Doppke Award Seminar Series
The Karen Doppke Award for Women in Medical Physics was established in 2022 in honor of Karen P. Doppke, MS, DABR, FAAPM, FACR, for her many contributions to the field of medical physics. Mid-career, female-identifying, physicists are sought from all areas of medical physics, including therapeutic, diagnostic, nuclear medicine, and radiation safety. Applicants are evaluated for their contributions to medical physics in clinical practice, clinical innovation, education, mentorship, leadership, and professional community service such as with local and national organizations. This award includes an honorarium and a visiting lecture at Mass General.
Physics Seminar Series
The Mass General Radiation Oncology Physics Seminar Series is a weekly seminar series held on Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m. EST. Speakers from around the world present their latest research related to Radiation Oncology, with a focus on Medical Physics, but reaching out across disciplines including biology, clinical research, and all sciences.
Registration is required.
Techniques of Proton Radiotherapy
A course designed by Bernard Gottschalk, PhD for persons who are, or plan to be, occupied with the design, maintenance, or upgrade of proton radiotherapy facilities. A wide variety of topics are covered including Bragg peak, single scattering, and nuclear reactions.
Suggested Prerequisite: Bachelor’s degree in Science or Engineering
Residency & Certificate Programs
The Harvard Medical Physics Residency Program is a CAMPEP accredited three-year program providing research and clinical exposures in radiation oncology and is intended for applicants with a Ph.D. in physics or related sciences. This program also offers a CAMPEP-accredited Certificate Program, which enables individuals with a non-CAMPEP medical physics Ph.D. to complete all didactic requirements within the residency program.
