Clinical Medical Physics Post-Ph.D. Residency (Minnesota)

Program description

This three-year training program in clinical diagnostic medical physics is open to any individual who recently received a doctoral degree in medical physics, physics or engineering.

The objectives of the Clinical Medical Physics Post-Ph.D. Residency are twofold:

  • Provide broad training and experience for those who wish to pursue careers in clinical diagnostic imaging
  • Provide a strong academic component for candidates who wish to follow a more academic path

The program normally begins on July 1. It is structured to provide general training in diagnostic imaging modalities, including general X-ray, fluoroscopy, angiography, mammography, ultrasound, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, PET and informatics. Additional specialized training, research and teaching opportunities are also offered.

An optional three-month rotation to Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, or Scottsdale, Arizona, also is available.


This program provides three years of specialized training required for eligibility for the American Board of Radiology certification in Diagnostic Medical Physics.

Program history

The Clinical Medical Physics Post-Ph.D. Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, began in 1990.
