I would think that to get a fully-funded scholarship, your record up to now would have to be quite outstanding. Can you share some of your major accomplishments with us that you will be putting on your application to these schools?

We also have a number of folks who are very experienced in Medical Physics. You should get good responses to your questions here. :smile:

These days it's rare for medical physics PhD programs to be "fully" funded, particularly for international students, where tuition tends to be higher. That said, there are many programs where they offer a combination of stipends, teaching assistanceships, research assistanceships, and work doing quality assurance measurements that allow students to fully support themselves through the process without taking on any student debt. You might want to start by checking out some of the accredited medical physics programs in Canada, where this is often the case.

The full list of CAMPEP-accredited programs is here:
