    Hmm. This seems to contradict what I've heard. I'm judging by the title of your other thread that this is indeed the case, though?

    Just make sure you read the whole article rather than taking the title as gossipal.

    I thoroughly disagree. If you look at job posting for clinical medical physicists, many mention that a PhD is preferred but not necessary to apply. Also, some very reputable residency programs for medical physics only accept applications from people with a PhD.
