## Work Unit Description
The Oregon Medical Physics Program (OMPP) is a CAMPEP accredited graduate program in medical physics, graduating both MS and PhDs, in both therapeutic and diagnostic imaging physics.
Information about Medical Physics and Radiation Therapy Programs at OHSU:
The joint graduate education program in medical physics between Oregon Health and Science University and Oregon State University received its initial CAMPEP accreditation in 2011, and offers both MS and PhD degrees in therapeutic medical physics. In 2013, the program added a second track in diagnostic imaging physics. The total enrollment of the graduate program is about 15 students and enrollment is slated to stay below 25 at its largest size. Faculty in both Radiation Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology contribute to the education of all students in the Oregon Medical Physics Program. This position will have research and teaching access to clinical machines across campus, and will report directly to the Medical Physics graduate program director, but will have their academic home (for P&T;) in Radiation Medicine.
Since its inception in 1991, the OHSU Radiation Therapy Program has developed into one of the nation s best baccalaureate degree programs. The program is now looking to implement a Master s program in Dosimetry that will build upon the foundational radiation therapy knowledge gained at the baccalaureate level. This new program would also leverage the unique curriculum and experiences provided by the inter-professional healthcare education initiative currently underway at OHSU.
