Division of Medical Physics

Welcome to the Medical Physics Graduate Program

Medical Physics Graduate Program studentsOur CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics program offers both M.S. degrees, with concentrations in Diagnostic Imaging Physics and Radiation Oncology Physics, and a Ph.D. degree, with concentration in Radiation Oncology Physics. 

Upon successful completion of the first year of the curriculum, all students are eligible to take Part 1 of the American Board of Radiology (ABR) Certification Exam.

The master degree concentrations are in the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences’ Master of Science in the Biomedical Sciences (MSBS) graduate program. In addition to the normal thesis research degree, a non-thesis option for a Master of Science in Radiation Oncology is offered for graduate students who already possess a thesis oriented graduate science degree.

The doctorate degree offering is a Ph.D. in Physics with specialization in medical physics, offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, 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.
