The position is flexible and an ACPSEM registered medical physics specialist in Radiology with an interest in nuclear medicine would also be considered. ACPSEM TEAP Registrar’s nearing completion of the training program are also invited to apply.

Role Summary

The Consultant Medical Physics Specialist (CMPS Level 1) works independently as an ACPSEM qualified medical physics specialist in the Medical Physics Specialists team, within the policy and procedure framework of Health STEM Solutions. This includes both setting service delivery requirements and directing medical radiation technical officers (MRTO), as well as directly delivering medical physics services for clients in radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology. This may include regulatory advice, routine data collection and presentation, dosimetry calculation, physics equipment support, quality system and records management, the use of both clinical information systems and clinical imaging/treatment systems.

A Level 1 CMPS is expected to work with a degree of autonomy for routine tasks and to provide appropriate guidance and support to MRTO staff. Interactions with clients for the provision of professional consultant advice is an expectation of the role.
