The Medical Physics Program awards MS and PhD degrees in Medical Physics and Health Physics. The Medical Physics Graduate program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP), and is the largest medical physics graduate program in North America. Approximately 100 students are enrolled, and the typical entering class size is 15-20 students. Medical Physics Program faculty also supervise students from outside Medical Physics (BME, ECE, NEEP, Physics, Neuroscience, etc.), bringing the total number of graduate students working in the department to more than 110.

The Department of Medical Physics also manages a CAMPEP-accredited Imaging Physics Residency Program. This program enrolls two residents, which is typical for medical physics residency programs.

The Medical Physics Educational Programs Coordinator will also serve as the administrator of the Radiological Sciences Training Program, a National Cancer Institute (T32) training grant. The T32 supports eight PhD students and three postdoctoral trainees who have research projects related to medical physics applications in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Approximately 4-5 training grant openings are filled each year.
