Medical Physics

Do you have a strong background in physics or engineering physics and mathematics? Are you interested in the application of physics to medicine? Are you looking to further your studies in medical physics at a CAMPEP-accredited program?
Consider preparing for a career as a Medical Physicist.
Medical Physics at the University of Alberta has 3 educational programs:
· Medical Physics Graduate Program
· Radiation Oncology Physics Residency Program
· Diagnostic Imaging Physics Residency Program
The University of Alberta Medical Physics Graduate Program offers two graduate degrees:
· MSc in Medical Physics
· PhD in Medical Physics
This graduate program has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP) since 2002.
In 2005, CAMPEP accredited the two Physics Residency Programs. As a result, Medical Physics at the Cross Cancer Institute, University of Alberta became the first institution in the world to have its 3 education programs accredited by CAMPEP.
Starting in 2012, everyone who writes their exam to become professionally certified as a Medical Physicist by the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine must be a graduate of a CAMPEP - accredited graduate program or a CAMPEP- accredited residency program.
Number of UofA Medical Physics Graduates since 2002:
All University of Alberta graduates have entered a medical physics residency program, continued their studies at the PhD level, or entered the workforce in the medical physics field (e.g., radiation safety). They have found positions in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and in Missouri, Ohio and Texas.
