Information for Residents and Prospective Residents
The Medical Physics Residency Programs do not have an annual deadlines for applicant submissions. Program openings are based on availability which in turn depends on the progress of residents currently in the program. A maximum of 3 residents in Radiation Oncology and 1 resident in Diagnostic Imaging Physics may be taken at one time. Openings in the residency program are advertised in the following job opportunity bulletins:
Applicants should have a graduate degree, preferably a PhD in Medical Physics or a closely related field (eg. Biomedical Engineering). Preference will be given to applicants who have graduated from a CAMPEP accredited program. Graduates of a non CAMPEP accredited program may be accepted based on their background knowledge, course work and personal achievements. See the Graduate Courses page as a guide to the course work required in the University of Alberta Medical Physics Graduate Program, a CAMPEP accredited program.
