On behalf of our faculty and staff of medical physics division, I would like to welcome you to the University of Toledo’s Medical Physics web page. I hope you find the information here useful and get most of your questions answered. If after looking at various links you still have further questions, I would be glad to hear from you.
Medical Physics program at the University of Toledo College Of Medicine (previously known as Medical College of Ohio) has been in existence for nearly four decades and has produced many professionals who are leaders in the field today. Our goal is to continue producing intellectually stimulated individuals who will possess advanced knowledge in the field of medical physics and would be prepared to excel as clinicians, academic medical center’s faculty, and researchers in the field of medical physics. We remain proactive about achieving this goal through seeking, attracting and retaining graduate faculty of the highest calibers and maintaining the highest standards of excellence in our didactic course works, clinical clerkship and other scholarly programs.
In this CAMPEP-accredited Medical physics program, we offer both MSBS and Ph.D. degrees with concentrations in Radiation Oncology Physics and in Diagnostic Imaging Physics. The Masters degrees are administered through the UT College of Medicine’s Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (MSBS) graduate program. They are based in the Departments of Radiation Oncology, and Radiology, located on the campus of the UT medical center.
The doctorate degree offering is a Ph.D. in Physics with specialization in medical physics, offered by the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, through the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Students in this program must satisfactorily complete the core physics courses and pass the physics Qualifying and Comprehensive Exams. In addition to satisfying all of the requirements for the physics Ph.D., these students will complete the medical physics courses and the required clinical clerkship within the College of Medicine, and will pursue appropriate dissertation research applicable to medical physics.
Graduates of UTMC are highly qualified to pursue board certification as medical physicists or to compete for available positions in clinical medical physics residency.
Please look around the web page and let me know if I can provide further information.
