Can Medical Physicists work as Health Physicists?

  1. Jun 26, 2014 #1
    Just wondering, can a graduate with a MS in Medical Physics work as a health physicist.
    Essentially they both have the same knowledge about radiation, and even my curriculum we take a course about health physics.

    I know several MSc graduates who took positions in radiation safety.
