The University of Florida’s Medical Physics Program is one of the oldest medical physics programs in the US, originating in 1961. The program is CAMPEP accredited for graduate degrees for both the M.S. and Ph.D. While our program is academically housed in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering, the program is a joint effort of the College of Engineering and the College of Medicine. Participating departments include Biomedical Engineering, Radiology, Radiation Oncology, and Neurosurgery. Several off-campus organizations are also active contributors to clinical aspects of the program, including the UF Proton Therapy Institute, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, Robert Boisenault Oncology Institute, and the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Orlando. Faculty from all of these departments and organizations participate in the direction of research and clinical training.
The Graduate Program in Medical Physics typically has about 40 students enrolled. At any given time about half of these students are pursuing an M.S. degree, and about half are Ph.D. candidates. Many M.S. students ultimately elect to pursue their Ph.D. studies at the University of Florida. Graduates have been successful in obtaining entry level jobs and physics residency positions. The graduate program is closely coordinated with other training programs offered at the University of Florida including a Certificate Program in Medical Physics, a Diagnostic Imaging Medical Physics Residency Program (in Radiology) and a Radiation Therapy Medical Physics Residency Program (in Radiation Oncology).
