The Medical Physics Education Program is available to enrolled Dartmouth PhD students in engineering and the physical sciences, and have an undergraduate preparation in physics (of at least 4 courses beyond introductory college physics). This program was accredited in 2016 by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP), and provides the curricular training required for successful completion of accredited Medical Physics Graduate Program. This pathway is required for a career in clinical medical physics and enables graduates to successfully sit for the ABR board exam and apply for CAMPEP accredited residency programs. Interested students must apply for admission to the accredited program after at the time of application to their PhD Program at Dartmouth or shortly afterwards. All students should discuss this option with their faculty advisor and one of the Program Directors.
The Medical Physics Program enhances a Dartmouth PhD education with:
- Six required didactic courses directly applicable to a career in clinical medical physics
- A practicum experience in clinical medical physics (additional applied courses)
PhD students completing the Program will be prepared both for further education and research in medical physics and for application into the matching process for accredited medical physics residency programs — administered by CAMPEP.
This program is led jointly by Dartmouth faculty in:
- Thayer School of Engineering
- Geisel School of Medicine (in the Departments of Radiology, Surgery and Medicine).
