Program History

In 2006 Oregon State University (OSU) and Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) came together to create a program called the Oregon Medical Physics Program (OMPP). The motivation behind this collaborative degree emerged from a desire to utilize innovative local experts in radiation physics at OSU as well as medical professionals at OHSU.

The OMPP is the only  CAMPEP-accredited program in the Northwest. Since being accredited with CAMPEP in 2011, the OMPP program has expanded from radiation oncology physics to include a graduate track in diagnostic imaging physics. Also, in an effort to increase the time students spend in a clinical setting, the students now matriculate directly to OHSU; the state's only academic health center.

Oregon Medical Physics Program's Goal

The OMPP has one over-arching goal:

To provide education, clinic-based training, and experience to our medical physics students in order to prepare them for success in their future careers. 

Program Admissions

The program application will open September 1, 2017 and close December 1, 2017 for a Fall 2018 start date. Check our website for updates.
