We also administer a Graduate Certificate Program allowing those who hold PhDs in other branches of physics to enter the field and profession. Graduates of all of our programs are eligible to enter residency training programs in imaging or radiation oncology medical physics.
The course work and practical training in our programs can position you for a dynamic and versatile career in physics as applied to diagnosis and treatment of patients. Medical physicists may work in hospitals, cancer agencies, universities, industry or government.
Our faculty provides a highly collaborative, collegial learning environment that features world-class research facilities and technology.
Dalhousie University's CAMPEP (Commision on Accreditation of Medical Physics) acredited master's program in Medical Physics combines course and research work that builds critical knowledge in the field with hands-on training that prepares students for rewarding careers.
Courses in the Medical Physics program provide students with the medical physics foundations specified within the CAMPEP standards. All required coursework is completed in the first year and students focus on their thesis research in the second year.
MSc graduates may go on to pursue PhD degree programs, enter residency training programs in imaging or therapeutic medical physics, or enter the workforce directly.
