Educational Programs


Welcome to VCU's Medical Physics Educational Programs! 

Thank you for your interest in the Medical Physics Educational Programs at Virginia Commonwealth University. We offer CAMPEP-accredited MS and PhD degrees, a post-doctoral graduate certificate, and post-graduate clinical residency training in medical physics.

Since the program’s inception in the Fall of 2004, we have evolved into one of the leading medical physics educational programs in the country.  As part of the VCU School of Medicine, and under the Department of Radiation Oncology on the MCV campus, the Medical Physics Educational Programs at VCU allow our students and trainees the opportunity to closely interact with physicians, radiologists, dosimetrists, therapists, medical physicists and patients, and bring classroom education to life.

Please feel free to explore the programs we have to offer though our website and contact us if you have any questions.
