Master of Science in Medical Physics

The American Association of Physicists in Medicine defines medical physics as applying the methods and concepts of physics towards the diagnosis and treatment of human disease, utilizing medical electronics, bioengineering and health physics.

The goal of this program, the only program in the Philadelphia region that offers training on the two largest suppliers of linear accelerators in the United States, is to create Qualified Medical Physicists, who can independently provide clinical professional services in one or more of the subfields of medical physics – therapeutic, diagnostic, nuclear, and medical health.
