5-year combined B.S. in Physics and 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 5-year combined B.S. in Physics and M.S. in Medical Physics program.
Students will obtain both a B.S. in Physics and a M.S. in Medical Physics from the program. The first three years of study are similar to those of strictly physics majors; in the fourth and fifth years, students will begin to focus on medical and biological physics courses that include hospital-based lectures and demonstrations.
The ultimate goal of the program is to provide to students basic education in physics and medical physics and prepare students to continue their education and career in both physics and 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.
