2 Year M.S. in Medical Physics


The Department of Physics at the University of Rhode Island in partnership with the Radiation Oncology Department at the Rhode Island Hospital Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and RI Nuclear Science Center offers M.S. in Medical Physics through the 2-year program.

Students with B.S. in Physics or an equivalent degree with advanced physics courses can enter the program. Applicants follow the same procedures as other graduate physics applicants. They apply online and identify the MS program as their desired major.

The ultimate goal of the M.S. program in Medical Physics is to provide to students basic education in medical physics and prepare students to continue their education and career in medical physics.

To become certified, student will then need to apply to an accredited residency program in a hospital. Rhode Island Hospital plays a vital role in both programs, providing a residency program on a competitive basis for students upon graduation. Many of the graduate courses in medical physics are taught at the hospital by practicing Medical Physicists. The facilities at the hospital will also be made available for you to use as teaching aids and research tools.

Director of Medical Physics Program, Dr. Yana Reshetnyak
