And Beyond...

When you complete an undergraduate degree in Medical Physics from Ryerson University, a number of options open up before you.

Junior Roles in Physics

Our BSc graduates may qualify for entry-level roles in medical physics or other professionally-related fields. Examples include research assistants, lab technologists and safety monitors. Some work for organizations in biomedical technology, bioinformatics, nuclear energy, and disease centres, among others.

Alternate Career Paths

Students may complete their science degree as a foundation for entrance to schools of medicine, dentistry or pharmacy. Others pursue paths in education, communications, management and law.

Advanced Studies in Medical Physics

The medical physics field is highly specialized and often multidisciplinary in nature. Advanced roles often require further training and qualifications.

Post-Graduate Options: Some BSc graduates pursue advanced diplomas or complementary degrees in applied health sciences from organizations such as the Michener Institute.

Many of our alumni continue onto a master’s program in medical physics. Our own graduate-level CAMPEP Medical Physics field provides seamless entry to the clinical medical physicist career path. Some students pursue studies at the PhD level or residency programs in medical physics subspecialties.

Get Started:
Graduate programs in medical physics are usually heavily research based. Students currently enrolled in our undergraduate program should complete the fourth-year thesis to build foundational experience in research. Start exploring available graduate programs and research interests. Talk to professors about their specialty expertise. Learn how graduate funding works. Explore our graduate studies and the Yeates School of Graduate Studies (YSGS) websites.
