In this virtual tour, we will provide a sneak peek of the UCSF Radiation Oncology Department. We will demonstrate a robotic-based linear accelerator used for radiation treatment of cancer and show how it delivers radiation (and dances)! What does a medical physicist do? What are their roles in radiology and oncology at hospitals? And how does one become a medical physicist? If you think science is cool, you might enjoy medical physics!

Event Hosts

The members of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco, are international leaders in the field of radiation medicine, with a history of pioneering research and technological innovations that have improved radiation treatment all over the world.
