Penn’s goal is to ensure that the Medical Physics Programs continue to provide the most advanced, rigorous and innovative education in this highly competitive and evolving field. We are currently putting a hold on admissions in order to do a full evaluation of our curriculum, research opportunities and professional development. The current master’s and post-graduate certificate programs will continue to serve its currently enrolled students. However, we will not admit a new class in fall 2017 and we are no longer accepting application submissions. We welcome you to contact our program team if you have any questions about this update.
Financing your education
It is our goal at Penn to make education accessible to talented students from the widest possible range of backgrounds.
There are several funding opportunities available to Master of Medical Physics students at the University of Pennsylvania, including:
- Partial stipends for select first-year students acting as research assistants
- Employment opportunities for second-year students working in the Roberts Proton Therapy Center performing quality assurance measurements
- Partial stipends available to select second-year students acting as teaching assistants for select first-year courses
- Part-time employment opportunities (non-work study positions)
Medical Physics Programs students are also eligible to apply for financial aid, including a variety of student loans, some of which are subsidized by the federal government. All domestic applicants interested in their loan eligibility should complete the FAFSA form after applying to a Medical Physics Program. Penn’s Student Financial Services (SFS) office is available to help prospective and current students navigate the process. For more information on financing your graduate studies, visit their website for Graduate and Professional Students or contact SFS.
If you intend to complete your Medical Physics program as a working professional, you may be able to take advantage of tuition reimbursement benefits offered by your employer. If you are a full-time Penn employee, learn more about Penn’s tuition benefits package.
