Requirements and Application
Last verified on December 3, 2018
RequirementsTo be eligible for Part 1 on a new application, you must be enrolled in and in good standing with, or have graduated from, a CAMPEP-accredited program (graduate program, doctorate in medical physics [DMP] program, certificate program, or medical physics residency). New applicants should review the ABR Audit Standards Policy for Initial Certification in Medical Physics. Note: CAMPEP has a service for review of individual courses. This is not the same thing as a CAMPEP-accredited certificate program and is not an acceptable credential for admission to the Part 1 Exam in medical physics. Completion of the certificate courses without being enrolled in a certificate program is also not an acceptable credential.
