Medical Physics, Applies Physics Masters

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'll have a masters in applied physics this summer. I have a bachelor's in bio-medical physics. I've recently started getting interested in medical physics. Is it possible to get into the field with this masters. I wouldn't be averse to taking some extra courses if it was necessary.

Thanks

It is 'possible,' but you're not likely to be competative for a position with just a master's degree from a non-accredited program. Further, you won't be eligible for certification unless you complete an accredited program.

If you're really interested in getting into the field, your best option is likely to get into an accredited medical physics PhD program.
