UC Doctoral Program Gains Accreditation

The UC doctoral program in medical physics has gained accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP) through December 2017.

In order to gain this accreditation, the program submitted a self-assessment report with evidence of compliance with requirements. Then, a survey team, consisting of senior medical physicists with experience in both clinical practice and educational programs, conducted a program site visit to validate the assessment.

The program met all standards and was acknowledged for providing appropriate opportunities for its master’s graduates and a comprehensive ethics course as part of the curriculum.
