Medical Physics Graduate Program - Plan of Study for 4+1 MS Degree in Diagnostic (Imaging) Radiological Physics

Upon entry into the program, students are expected to have completed the equivalent of two semesters of anatomy and physiology. Students that have not completed prior course work in anatomy and physiology are required to complete one of the following options: BIOL 301 and 302 or BIOL 203 and 204 or BMS 510 (Gross Anatomy) or equivalent.

In addition, students entering the 4+1 program must complete the Purdue Pre-Medical Physics B.S. degree, which includes coursework equivalent to a minor in physics, one year of anatomy and physiology and all of the core Medical Physics classes.

Notes

  • HSCI 312 is required for students that do not have equivalent coursework upon entry into the program.
  • Students are required to enroll in HSCI 696 Seminar in Health Sciences spring and fall semesters while in the graduate program. However, only 1 credit hour applies towards the completion of the required coursework.
