Haramaya University - Fisico Medico Etiopia

Dear colleague,
MPWB has been approached by Dr. Patrick Kupelian MD, FASTRO, V.P. Clinical Affairs, Varian Medical Systems about the possibility of providing temporary Medical Physics

support to Haramaya University, Harar, Ethiopia.

The Context

  • 5-6 linacs are going in at 5 different cities in Ethiopia over the next few years.
  • Specifically, the second linac is going in at Haramaya University in Harar and it will be operational in early 2017.
  • Two medical physicist for Haramaya University are starting their residency training for two years in Italy. Therefore, they will be joining Haramaya University by the end of 2018 in the best case scenario.
  • They need Medical Physics support starting, if possible, January 2017. While the preference is for someone to be there for a full year, shorter sessions (3-6 months) can be accommodated if necessary.
  • The monthly salary is 3,000-3,500 USD.
  • A guesthouse/home is available for housing.
  • The university will pay for visa, plane ticket and related costs.

If there’s anyone who would be interested in helping out, please contact Dr. Kupelian at Patrick.Kupelian@varian.com .

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,


Jacob (Jake) Van Dyk, MSc, FCCPM, FAAPM, FCOMP, DSc(hon)
