Prerequisites

1. Applicants must have previously earned a Ph.D. graduate degree in Physics, Engineering, or other closely related scientific program from an accredited US academic institution.  A minimum 3.0 GPA on all graduate work is required.

 2.  PhDs from non-Physics backgrounds must satisfy the CAMPEP requirements for an undergraduate minor in Physics.  This includes the calculus based introductory general physics sequence and three upper division (junior or senior level) topical physics courses that would be taken by a physics major.  Examples of upper division courses include Modern Physics or Electricity and Magnetism.

 3. Applicants must meet the requirements of the University of Kentucky Graduate School to enroll as a Non-Degree Certification Student.  These requirements are the same as those for Post-Baccalaureate Graduate Students.  More information on the requirements for Post-Baccalaureate Graduate Students can be found at http://www.research.uky.edu/gs/ProspectiveStudents/admission_categories.html.

 4. Applicants must satisfy one of the following conditions: a) Have successfully completed ANA 209 Human Anatomy (3), PGY 206 Human Physiology (3), and RAS/RM/PHY 472G Interactions of Radiation with Matter (3) or their equivalents; or b) Take these courses concurrently with the General Radiological Medical Physics Graduate Certificate. Fulfillment of this requirement is as determined and/or approved by the certificate director.
