Position: Medical Physics Summer Intern

Research Area: Radiation Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital

Full/Part Time: Full Time

Platform: The Department of Radiation Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital

Date Posted: 2015-12-15

Description: The Department of Radiation Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital is looking for motivated undergraduate physics or engineering students for a summer internship. The program will begin with introductory lectures in physics, medical physics, and radiation oncology. Interns will then gain firsthand exposure to these topics through a variety of clinical operations alongside leading medical professionals. Topics will include: radiation physics and biology, radiation oncology, patient-specific treatment planning, brachytherapy, electron beam therapy, and proton therapy. Interns will have the opportunity to attend departmental meetings as well as relevant hospital-sanctioned lectures. The program will culminate in a mentored research project in a field of particular interest to each intern. Interns will gain a fundamental understanding of radiation’s role in the treatment of cancer at one of the world’s leading healthcare institutions.

Responsibilities: The program will tentatively run from June 13 through August 12 of 2016, though program schedule can be flexible depending on each intern’s academic commitments. Interns will work forty hours per week in total; hourly schedule will vary week by week. A stipend will be provided to each intern upon completion of the summer internship.

Requirements: The ideal candidate is a high achieving physics or engineering student with an interest in medical physics, an excellent GPA, a research background, and strong references. Each applicant should provide the follow: -A 1-2 page personal statement that provides a brief description of the applicant’s background, career goals (both short and long term), how this internship will contribute to them, and any other information the applicant deems pertinent. -1-2 faculty letters of recommendation -Curriculum Vitae Please submit applications by email to Michael Young (myoung22@mgh.harvard.edu) by February 29, 2016. Applicants who are selected for interviews will be notified to by March 14, 2016.
