Application Process


Up to two candidates are accepted each year on a competitive basis for the Medical Physics Residency at Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona. The program begins in July.

How to apply

Your application and all supporting documentation must be received before midnight (Mountain Standard Time) on the third Thursday in December of the year before you'd begin the program.

  1. Online application. Through the Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP) on the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) website, complete the online application and select Mayo Clinic in Arizona as one of your choices.

    Mayo Clinic in Arizona is participating in the Medical Physics Matching Program (MedPhys Match), which is administered by National Matching Services. Our match code is 10411. Candidates must register for the MedPhys Match.

  2. Supporting materials. Submit these application materials:

    • Transcripts
    • Letters of recommendation
    • Personal statement
    • Personal information
    • Curriculum vitae or resume
    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores, if applicable
    • Certification process status
  3. Interviews. The selection committee carefully reviews each application. Individuals considered for the Medical Physics Residency are invited to participate in a phone interview process, which is followed by in-person interviews in Phoenix.
  4. Acceptance. Acceptance into the program will occur through the National Match Services system, and all rules of the MedPhys Match apply. Candidates and programs will both find out the match results on March 25.

    Candidates accepting their appointments are then sent formal paperwork that initiates the final eligibility process, which includes a background check, drug screening and verification of all information submitted during the application process.
