Master’s in Medical Physics


The program is designed for full-time students who wish to pursue a career as a medical physicist either as a researcher, as a certified clinical professional, or in industry. The program will require successful completion of a minimum of 38 credits for Master’s degree and completion of a research thesis (in conjunction with one or more of the faculty). Full-time master’s students will complete the program in two years.

From the Director

Dear prospective applicant,

We have designed the curriculum with three complementary objectives in mind. First, to make your two years in this program as rewarding as possible in terms of your short and long-term career objectives. Second to introduce you to other areas of Medical Physics that you may find interesting and third to highlight for you the tremendous value that medical physicists can bring to medical research endeavors beyond the role of a clinical medical physicist.

As program director, I see it my responsibility to help every program participant meet and, ideally exceed, their own definition of career success. The unparalleled resources and opportunities available within the broader Hopkins community make this possible. For those interested in a clinical therapy physics position, we already have a residency program in therapy physics within The Radiation Oncology Department to which master’s graduates may apply. We will also provide the opportunity to train in the emerging and highly multidisciplinary area of theranostic physics and radiopharmaceutical dosimetry. This relatively new area requires individuals that are familiar with both therapeutic and diagnostic physics as well as the physics aspects related to the use of radiopharmaceuticals for therapy, in particular pharmacokinetic modeling and dosimetry. This is a growth area and one that is in need of medical physics expertise – in the clinic, in industry and in academia.
