Graduate Program: Medical Physics

The Wayne State University graduate programs in Medical and Radiological Physics are among the most established and prestigious in North America. Graduate training in medical physics at WSU dates back to the early 1970's, when the WSU M.S. and Ph.D. programs were among the first to become accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP). 

Program Objectives

The program is administered through the Wayne State University School of Medicine, and is based in the Karmanos Cancer Institute Department of Radiation Oncology. This provides students with both the academic facilities of the largest single-campus medical school in the country, and the clinical facilities of one of only a limited number of NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Care Centers. The WSU School of Medicine is also affiliated with the Henry Ford Health System, offering students additional access to clinical and academic resources.

Students are trained in a clinical environment and work with the same equipment used by the professional medical physics staff to treat patients in our affiliated radiology and radiation oncology departments. Students have ample access to library and computing facilities, world-class faculty, and state-of-the-art clinical and laboratory facilities. Our programs are designed to produce graduates who are well prepared to enter clinical service and become board certified by the American Board of Radiology. Moreover, our graduates will become part of the next generation of health care professionals and researchers leading the advancement of the technological aspects of medical care.
