One of our graduates (Kevin Kalbaugh – MS 1982) has notified us of an available position (for a therapeutic medical physicist) at the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute (RBOI) in Ocala, FL, where he works with several other Gators. More information about the position is posted below. Please contact Dr Richard Clarkson or Brad Beck for more information. It’s great to be a Florida Gator!

A position is immediately available for a Therapeutic Medical Physicist at the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute (RBOI), which is located in North Central Florida. RBOI is ACR accredited and consists of four radiation therapy facilities, with a total of six physicists, nine dosimetrists, two linear accelerator engineers and seven physicians. The physicists are a unified team, with a primary site of responsibility, but also rotate to the other facilities to provide cross coverage. All facilities are within a 30-mile radius. Each facility has its own dosimetrists and physicians. We have ten Varian Linacs, with an iX (OBI) and an EX type machine in each facility.  Each facility also has a Philips large-bore 16-slice CT scanner for patient simulation. All sites run on a unified Mosaiq record & verify database. Treatment planning is performed with the Philips Pinnacle (external beam) and Nucletron Oncentra (HDR) treatment planning computers.  HDR procedures include APBI, lung, and GYN. We use SunNuclear QA products for Daily and Patient QA (MapCheck and ArcCheck), and use the OmniPro water tank system for annual QA. 

Ocala is a quiet community located approximately 40 minutes south of the University of Florida, and 1.5 hours from Orlando or Tampa. It’s famous for its surrounding thoroughbred horse farms, in terrain similar to Kentucky bluegrass. There are plenty of parks and recreational activities and it’s an amazing place for outdoor lovers.

We’re looking for a clinically oriented individual, and we would consider applicants in their final year of a therapy residency.  We offer an attractive salary based on experience and a generous benefits package, including reimbursement for all licensing and certification expenses, and appropriate meeting/CE costs.
