During the program you’ll gain the clinical experience necessary to apply for residencies and move into clinical practice. As a full-time student, you can complete the Master of Medical Physics program in two years. In the second year, clinical rotations place you in the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
As a Penn Master of Medical Physics graduate, you have the opportunity to compete for dedicated positions in our Medical Physics Residency program in the University of Pennsylvania Health System. The year-long clinical experience may be renewed for a second year and counts toward requirements for certification by the American Board of Radiology.
Students may also have the opportunity to find part-time clinical work in the University of Pennsylvania Health System to gain relevant clinical experience while earning a stipend.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3.5 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
Applicants to the Master of Medical Physics (MMP) degree should have a solid foundation in physics. Successful candidates usually hold either an undergraduate major in physics or a physical science, mathematics or related engineering discipline with a strong physics orientation.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
