We prefer that candidates have a PhD or MS degree in medical physics from a CAMPEP accredited graduate program or a PhD degree in physics, engineering or physical science related field and must be willing to commit 2 years to the residency program.
Incoming residents will have satisfied CAMPEP requirements for didactic coursework based on graduation from a CAMEP-accredited Medical Physics graduate program or transcript from a CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics certificate program. A CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics certificate program will include the following core curriculum as defined in AAPM report 197S:
It should be noted that the UCLA Biomedical Physics program is a CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics graduate program and a CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics certificate program. Resident candidates not meeting the CAMPEP-accredited entrance didactic requirements outlined above must satisfy the AAPM 197S core coursework and only two of the six core courses may be taken during the two-year residency. Application Timeline
The UCLA Medical Physics Residency Program participates in the Medical Physics Matching Program. Medical Physics residency applications will be accepted using the AAPM Common Application Program (aapm.org/cap/) between October and December 1th. The UCLA Department of Radiation Oncology residency program sub-committee will review and rank the applications and will interview top candidates.
