Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Health/Medical Physics
Description Dalhousie's CAMPEP (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Programs) doctoral program in Medical Physics prepares graduates to pursue a rich and diverse range of career opportunities and to become leaders in the field of medical physics. The PhD program requires one year of core courses and, typically, three years of thesis research. Courses in the PhD program (which can also be completed in conjunction with the MSc program) provide students with the medical physics foundations specified within the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics standards. Our PhD students are encouraged to be innovators, beginning with their thesis research. For your doctoral thesis, you can undertake research in therapeutic medical physics, medical imaging or a variety of multi-disciplinary topics. When you graduate with your PhD in Medical Physics, you will be well positioned to compete for residency training programs and career opportunities that can include and combine clinical support, research, academics and administration.

Requirements
Test Scores:

English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.

Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
Applicants are required to submit two academic reference letters, either through the electronic reference system in the online application or by paper. Please visit the website for complete details.
