Application Process


Up to two candidates are accepted each year on a competitive basis for the Medical Physics Residency at Mayo School of Health Sciences in 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 last Thursday in December of the year before you'd begin the program.

  1. Online application. Through the Common Application Program 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.
  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. Verbal commitment is conveyed in February each year in accordance with the recommendations of AAPM's Working Group Committee on Medical Physics Residencies with the candidate given 24 hours to accept or decline.

    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. The program will participate in a match system once such a system is available.
