Hello, I've recently started my M.Sc. in medical physics at a CAMPEP-accredited Canadian institution. I am surprised to learn so quickly how difficult the career path is in medical physics. While so far I love the field, after hearing how thin the job market is ( in Canada anyway) I'm a little concerned about bringing home the bacon in the future. From those in the field, I would be grateful for advice on career options for someone who would prefer not to pursue a PhD. Ideally, I would like to get into a residency program without the PhD, which I hear really isn't necessary. However, I've heard how competitive this is. I could sum up my concerns in 3 questions: 1) Are there any jobs I can get with only an M.Sc. degree? (No residency) 2) Could anyone provide advice for someone who will attempt to get into a residency program with only a Master's degree? Does the graduate GPA matter? Is external funding attainable for a residency so a prospective department won't have to pay me (I'm Canadian)? 3) Is it easier to enter a residency program or find employment abroad (USA, Europe, elsewhere)? Any input would be really appreciated. Thanks!
