Dr. Mutic joined our department as a medical physics resident in 1996, he became the chief of clinical medical physics in 2006, he was promoted to medical physics division director in 2011, and finally to the department vice-chair in 2017. He has been an extraordinary contributor to the success of the Washington University Department of Radiation Oncology and the Siteman Cancer Center.
He has led the Department’s clinical strategy and commitment to advancing our field for over two decades. During this time, the medical physics division has grown from supporting a single location to providing clinical services at ten centers, quadrupling the number of medical physicists. In this period, our education and research and development programs have grown as well, with the department being a national and international leader in many medical physics related areas.
Dr. Mutic will depart from the department at the end of May. We will miss his leadership and unwavering support of cancer care and advancing our field.
