Medical Physics, MSMP
The Master of Science in Medical Physics (MSMP) degree program prepares students as future leaders for careers in medical physics specialties such as radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine, and health physics. Students gain the clinical experience necessary to apply for residencies and move into clinical practice as well as research experience to prepare students for a PhD program. The program is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP).
A total of 15 course units is required, including a thesis. Students complete a faculty-mentored, applied research project of their own design, culminating in a paper and presentation.
