Objectives:

Apply the clinical capabilities and knowledge gained during my experience as a medical physicist to conduct and maintain a state of the art patient care. Continue my applied research in cancer treatment techniques (Monte Carlo calculations, experimental development)

Education:

Site: Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, USA CAMPEP accredited program.

PhD in Medical Physics (2004 – 2009), Department of NE

Site: Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel
PhD Subject: “Magnetic Fields in Radiotherapy; Dosimetry and Applications”


M.Sc in Nuclear Engineering (2002 – 2004)

Site: Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel

B.Sc. in Nuclear Engineering, majored in Electric Engineering (1998 – 2002) Site: Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel

Work Experience/Clinical and Academic Appointments/Teaching:

Chief Medical Physicist- Ziv Medical Center, Safed, Israel.

Leading clinical professionals to establish and facilitate the foundation of the new Radiation Oncology department that is treating since mid 2017. The clinic new building hosts 2 Linac vaults and a Brachytherapy suite. A Varian TrueBeam with HD MLC and Exact Track system has been commissioned under my leadership. Among my duties are writing policies and procedures for the new clinic, and recruiting professional staff and conducting an electronic paperless work flow. A second Linac has been acquired and will be installed at the end of 2017.

I have accepted and commissioned the Linac, TPS (Eclipse) and R&V system (Aria). I have commissioned Brain Lab Iplan TPS, along with all QA and dosimetry devices (DAily QA, ArcCheck etc. )
