Since the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP)-accredited Doctorate of Medical Physics degree satisfies the The American Board of Radiology's residency requirement, students are prepared to step directly into clinical medical physicist positions following graduation.

The degree also prepares students for related industry positions, but all UT Health San Antonio DMP graduates thus far have entered into clinical positions after graduation.

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is proud to partner with the Texas Higher Education Board in helping students develop and build on skills employers value and seek out in job candidates.
