- An undergraduate degree in the sciences with at least a 3.0 average, including acceptable courses in Calculus, Differential Equations, calculus-based Introductory Physics Series with labs, calculus-based Modern Physics, calculus-based Electricity and Magnetism, and acceptable additional advanced mathematics and/or physics. Most students with majors in Physics, another hard science, 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.
