About AHN

Allegheny Health Network is a Pittsburgh-based healthcare system. For more information about Allegheny Health Network see www.ahn.org. The Medical Physics Residency Program is based at Allegheny General Hospital (AGH). The Division of Radiation Oncology currently treats over 3000 patients annually on 18 state-of-the-art treatment units (mostly Elekta VersaHD) and 5 Elekta HDR Flexitrons across 14 facilities. Each facility houses a 4-D CT scanner. Construction of a brand new academic cancer center at AGH was completed in the summer of 2020 and added an Elekta MR Unity accelerator and two Elekta VersaHD to the existing equipment which includes a Gamma KnifeTM, a GammaPod, an Elekta VersaHD, and an Elekta HDR Flexitron. The Department of Radiation Oncology currently employs 22 faculty and professional staff involved in clinical medical physics activities. We plan to add two more physicists to our staff in 2020/2021.
