Our Mission

Our mission is to serve the needs of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States of America by helping to meet the demand for competent medical physicists in both the healthcare delivery and biomedical research settings.  The Medical Physics educational programs at VCU prepare students for careers as qualified clinical medical physicists, independent investigators, and active contributors in the field of medical physics by providing foundational professional training, hands-on clinical experience, and rigorous scientific research opportunities.  Alumni of our program go on to thrive in hospital clinics, university departments, research institutes, and laboratories across the country and around the world.
