Medical Physics
at Indiana University, Bloomington

A CAMPEP-accredited program

Medical Physics is the application of the concepts and methods of physics to the diagnosis and treatment of human disease.

The Master of Science in Medical Physics at IU Bloomington provides a rigorous education in physics, mathematics, chemistry and biomedical sciences in addition to practical courses in the four primary areas of the medical physics practice: radiation therapy physics, diagnostic imaging physics, nuclear medicine and radiation protection physics. Our Medical Physics MS curriculum prepares students for employment, apprenticeships/internships, CAMPEP residencies, and advanced degrees.

The Certificate in Medical Physics at IU Bloomington provides a pathway for Ph.D.s in Physics to apply for admission into CAMPEP-accredited Residency Programs in Medical Physics.

The Master of Science in Medical Biophysics at IU Bloomington provides a pathway for advanced education and research in biophysics with specific applications in medical technology, engineering, oncology and imaging. This course of study proivides increased flexibility to address the student's individual interests and is intended for applicants interested specifically in non-clinical opportunities. This pathway is not CAMPEP accredited.

The Master of Science in Health Physics at IU Bloomington provides graduate training in Health Physics and Radiation Safety. Graduates may find employment supervising the use of radioisotopes, isotope production, nuclear power, radiation producing machines, and safety policy. Degree holders are in high demand in this rapidly expanding and vitally important field.
