I graduated in May with a BS in Physics and I am interested in going into either Medical or Health Physics. I'm still trying to decide which I'd rather go to school for, but I will probably apply to both types of programs in the meantime. Does anyone have advice about what the best graduate programs are in each of these fields? I know that if I want to do Medical Physics I should go to a CAMPEP-accredited school, and there are very few graduate Health Physics programs, but which programs would better prepare me? I'm leaning towards doing a PhD if possible because I don't want this degree to add to my already hefty student debt. One program that I'm interested in is UMass Lowell's Radiological Sciences PhD, which is a CAMPEP-accredited program that allows students to concentrate in either Health or Medical Physics. Has anyone heard anything about UMass' program? It was only accredited in 2012. I would be most interested in this program because of geography and because of the option to choose which area to focus on after I've already had some exposure to each. Other programs I'm looking into are Penn and Columbia (for Medical Physics) and Oregon State (for Medical or Health Physics). Finally, how competitive are Medical and Health Physics programs to get into? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
