As most students enter the program from a variety of non-medical physics backgrounds, admission to the Medical Physics program is based on undergraduate GPA, letters of recommendation, GRE scores, and a technical degree (Math, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Biology, Public Health, or Engineering). Beginning graduate students should start their studies in the fall semester as the course sequence is based on that assumption. Beginning studies in January is discouraged.
Prospective students are encouraged to visit our campus and departments. Advance arrangements are recommended in order to schedule a meeting with individual professors.
