Applicants to the Medical Physics Residency Training Program should have either a CAMPEP-accredited Ph.D. in Medical Physics or a doctoral degree in a related field (e.g. physics, engineering) with additional CAMPEP required medical physics coursework. Prospective applicants are referred to the following information on the specific prerequisites for medical physics residency: Currently, Yale does not offer coursework to satisfy CAMPEP's didactic prerequisites.

New openings are generally posted in autumn with a December application deadline (watch AAPM career service, MedPhys listserver, and our departmental website for specific postings).  Our program participates in the national MedPhys Match: The Medical Physics Matching Program ( and accepts AAPM common applications. A selected number of applicants will be invited to interview on-site (at their own expense) between January and February. New resident will normally begin the residency on July 1st.
