- An undergraduate degree in the sciences with at least a 3.0 average, including courses in Calculus (equivalent to Hofstra University’s MATH 71-73), Differential Equations (equivalent to Hofstra University’s MATH 131), Introductory Physics (equivalent to Hofstra University’s PHYS 11A, 11B, 12A, 12B), Modern Physics (equivalent to Hofstra University’s PHYS 118A), Electricity and Magnetism (equivalent to Hofstra University’s PHYS 104), and 6 semester hours of additional advanced mathematics or physics. Most students with majors in Physics or Engineering will meet these requirements. Students with strong backgrounds but lacking some of these requirements may be considered for admission subject to passing appropriate pre-requisite courses with a grade of B or higher.
- Two letters of recommendation.
- An interview, scheduled at the request of the student or the program directors, is optional.
- Students whose native language is not English will be required to demonstrate competence in the English language.
- The following qualifications strongly support a student’s candidacy for admission and will be taken into account: a) potential for analytical and critical thinking, laboratory and clinical work, and personal growth; b) prior exposure to clinical medical physics or clinical medicine—for example as a volunteer; c) prior research experience; and d) skill in a major second language in the United States, such as Spanish.
