Radiation Oncology Professionals

Medical Physicist

Medical physicists at the St. Joseph Health Medical Group work directly with your radiation oncologist in the treatment planning, quality control program, and delivery of a radiation therapy plan. They oversee the work of the dosimetrist and help ensure that complex treatments are properly tailored for your specific situation. Each have advanced degrees, together with several years of clinical physics training, and each is certified by the American Board of Medical Physics.

Dosimetrist

Our dosimetrists work with your radiation oncologist and the medical physicist to create a treatment plan that is just right for your situation. Their job is to carefully calculate the dose of radiation and develop a number of treatment plans that can best destroy the tumor while sparing the normal tissues. All of our dosimetrists are licensed by the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board.
