Eligibility

The preferred qualification for entry to the residency program is a Ph.D. in medical physics from a CAMPEP accredited graduate program. The minimum requirement is a M.Sc. in medical physics (thesis-based) from a CAMPEP accredited graduate program.

Applicants with a PhD from a non-CAMPEP program may be considered if they have satisfactorily completed all 6 courses (Radiological physics and dosimetry; Radiation protection and safety; Fundamentals of medical imaging; Radiobiology; Medical anatomy and physiologic processes; Radiation therapy physics) equivalent to those in a  CAMPEP-accredited certificate program, as determined by the CAMPEP Graduate Education Program Review Committee (GEPRC).

Any courses being considered to meet the eligibility criteria must be listed on an official university transcript.  Please note – applicants must defend their thesis before the start of the Medical Physics Program.

The candidate must be eligible to work in Canada. A Canadian birth certificate or permanent residency card is required. The program is currently not sponsoring any work or student permits. International applicants are also required to satisfy the English Proficiency Requirement stipulated by University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies.
