Medical Physics Graduate Programs

In cooperation with the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Radiology at the VCU Medical Center, VCU offers programs leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and in Medical Physics. In the VCU medical physics program, faculty from the Department of Radiology provide didactic, clinical, and research training in the physics of medical imaging, and faculty from the Department of Radiation Oncology provide didactic, clinical, and research training in radiation therapy. Students also receive advanced didactic training in radiation biology from leading experts in the field and training in advanced health physics. The deadline for admissions to either program is January 15.

M.S. in Medical Physics

The Master of Science in Medical Physics offers students course work and practical clinical training in physics as it is applied to the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Required course work provides theoretical and practical training in radiation dosimetry, radiation biology, radiation therapy, imaging, and health physics.

Admission and degree requirements for the M.S. program can be found in the VCU Graduate Bulletin.

The VCU Medical Physics graduate program student handbook is also a good reference for admissions information, as well as information about the program in general.

Ph.D. in Medical Physics

The Ph.D. in Medical Physics offers students course work and research training in physics as it is applied to the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Research interests include functional imaging using PET and NMR, CT image artifact removal and deformation, intensity-modulated radiation therapy, radiation therapy dose calculations, 4D radiation therapy, and brachytherapy dose calculations.

Admission and degree requirements for the Ph.D. program can be found in the VCU Graduate Bulletin.
