Standard entry requirements

An Australian bachelor degree with a GPA of at least 2.5 out of 4.0 on physics (or science with a physics major). A related degree in a physical science, biomedical engineering or equivalent, having substantial physics and mathematics components may also be considered. International qualifications are assessed according to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).


The Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM) oversees a professional accreditation program that recognises and certifies experienced medical physicists. To be certified as a professional medical physicist in Australia, you must complete the requirements stipulated by the ACPSEM. This includes: undergraduate BSc (physics major and strong maths subjects) or BEng (strong physics and maths subjects), or ACPSEM approved equivalents an ACPSEM approved postgraduate degree in medical physics (usually masters or higher), or ACPSEM approved equivalents. You must also meet the undergraduate requirements (above) completion of the ACPSEM Training, Education and Accreditation Program (TEAP) while employed as a Medical Physics Registrar at an Accredited clinical centre. Accreditation for this program is pending.
