I was really hoping to get a degree in medical physics but due to the bottleneck in the residency programs I am worried that I wont get into a residency and thus not get certified. Not being certified would really limit my job opportunities. I am wondering what my options are if I don't end up getting certified? Are there even any medical physics jobs that hire non-certified medical physicists? Would I be qualified to be a dosimetrist or does that require a whole different set of classes? I would guess it would require some sort of certification, but with a medical physics degree would I be ready to take whatever test a dosimetrist needs to take to be certified?
