In SRS treatment planning, can a dosimetrist take the place of a medical physicist?  

We are in the process of implementing a BrainLab SRS program for intracranial sites.  In my previous experience, all of the planning and set-up for the procedure was done by physicist.  However, our institution would like to use a dosimeterist for the planning.  The dosimetrist has attended the BrainLab 1 week training program.  Are there any guidelines about training requirements for SRS?  What are other community based SRS programs doing for SRS treatment planning and delivery?  Thanks.
