The Department of Radiation Oncology at UCLA is seeking a certified medical dosimetrist to join our team of 13 physicists and 7 medical dosimetrists.
UCLA is a progressive department focused on using cutting edge radiation therapy techniques and technologies to provide the best possible care and service to our patients. Our department treats with two Varian TrueBeams, a TrueBeam STx, a NovalisTx, as well as an Accuray Precision and ViewRay MRIdian MRI-guided radiotherapy machine, and an active interstitial HDR brachytherapy program. Treatment planning is performed using Varian Eclipse, Elekta Oncentra, BrainLAB, Accuray Precision, and ViewRay treatment planning systems and MIM software. The record and verify system is Varian ARIA. Under the direction of the Chief of Clinical Physics, medical dosimetrists perform all aspects of SBRT, IMRT, 3D conformal, total body irradiation and HDR brachytherapy treatment planning.
Dosimetrists are expected to work closely with medical physicists and radiation therapists as needed to support treatment simulation and quality control, as well as participate actively in departmental quality initiatives and process improvement efforts.
In this role you will work at the UCLA Radiation Oncology Westwood and Santa Monica facilities, as well as other future locations.
Our ideal candidate will be proficient in IMRT, SBRT and 3D conformal radiotherapy planning and will hold a Bachelor’s Degree as well as MDCB certification or be eligible to sit for the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board exam.
