Career Opportunities

Career Pathways in Medical Physics

There are a number of career pathways in Medical Physics. You could work in one of many different health areas such as being involved with the commissioning, calibration, safe operation and maintenance of systems used for looking at or measuring what is happening in the body eg x-rays, ultrasound, light in various frequencies, laser Doppler blood flow measurement, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine.

For TEAP positions once you complete your degree you can apply for training positions at a clinical department in Australia or New Zealand as a Registrar in one of the following three speciality areas: nuclear medicine, radiation oncology and radiology.

Radiation oncology medical physicists are medical physicists who create, implement and monitor the procedures which allow the best treatment using radiation.

Radiology medical physicists involves numerous modalities for acquiring images of a patient's anatomy or physiology and plays an important role in the quality assurance of equipment and ensuring optimum image quality.

Medical Physics Registrar Positions

2 positions for TEAP Medical Physicist ROMP – Toowoomba and Gold Coast

Radiation Oncology Centres (ROC) is Australia’s fastest-growing radiation oncology provider with 15 sites across Australia offering a comprehensive range of specialist and general radiation therapy procedures.
ROC is proud to offer a unique patient centric model of care and is committed to providing better access to quality care for patients requiring radiation therapy treatment.

Equipment at ROC Toowoomba includes 2 Varian iX linear accelerators, and a soon to be installed Varian Halcyon, the first of its kind in Australia. Toowoomba is utilising ARIA and the Eclipse treatment planning system.

ROC GCUH includes 2 Elekta Synergy linear accelerators with Agility heads, incorporating the Hexapod couch, and a third Elekta Versa HD linear accelerator. The centre operates through the Mosaiq Oncology Information System with Pinnacle (photons) and Monaco (electrons) for treatment planning.

About the Roles:
ROC has two radiation oncology medical physicist (ROMP) TEAP positions currently available at our Toowoomba and Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH) clinics.

Successful applicants will be highly motivated individuals with a positive and enthusiastic attitude. A demonstrated ability to perform at a high level within a small team and in a strong multi-disciplinary environment would be an advantage.

Key Responsibilities:
Enrol in and undertake the ACPSEM ROMP TEAP program and achieve the program milestones within a defined schedule.
Support the Site Senior Physicist and the Director of Physics in the implementation of policy and procedures for all aspects of the physics service.
Perform routine physics tasks including but not limited to routine equipment quality assurance, patient specific quality assurance (e.g. IMRT/VMAT) and treatment planning support.
Participate in in-service education and review of current best practice to maximise service delivery.
Participation in in-house research & development projects with the aim of quality improvement in treatment delivery.
Participate in/take responsibility for commissioning of new radiotherapy systems as required.
Opportunity to assist in the management of a specific portfolio (e.g. treatment planning systems, IGRT systems etc).

Essential Requirements:
Eligible for enrolment in the ACPSEM TEAP program.
Current drivers licence.
Ability to travel between all ICON/ROC sites for temporary duties as required.
Completion of an ACPSEM approved MSc or PhD in medical physics is not essential but would be an advantage.
