Radiological Sciences Admissions
Timeline of Application Process
The application opens on September 1st and closes on January 15th.
All applicants should have an undergraduate GPA of at least a 3.0. Students are required to complete the general GRE test within the past five years. If applicable, applicants should have a TOEFL score of at least 68 or an academic examination of the IELTS with a score of at least 6.5. International students from a university in an English-speaking country may have the language test requirement waived. In addition to the graduate school requirements are program requirements of a bachelor's degree in a natural science or engineering. Additional requirements for the individual tracks are listed below.
Medical Physics Applicants shall have a strong foundation in basic Physics, which can be documented by either an undergraduate degree in Physics or a related Engineering or Physical Science degree with a minor in Physics (i.e. a calculus-based introductory course and at least 3 junior and senior level physics courses). Applicants are expected to have three semesters of calculus, up to and including differential equations, and one semester of linear algebra. Applicants also are expected to have one year (two semesters) each of basic college-level Chemistry and Biology training as well as one semester of Computer Science coursework.
Human Imaging Track
Accepted applicants have degrees in medicine and typically are concurrently being trained in a medical residency program (Radiology, Radiation Oncology or Psychiatry) while they are pursuing their Ph.D. degree.
Neuroscience Imaging Track
Accepted applicants typically have undergraduate degrees in Psychology or Neuroscience and/or another undergraduate degree with research experience in science involving the brain.
Radiation Biology Track
Applicants are expected to have completed at least two years (four semesters) of courses in undergraduate biology along with general Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry as well as basic Physics coursework.
