I am at an ABET accredited school studying Radiological Health Engineering(Nuclear) and I was thinking of applying to grad school for a MS in Medical Physics. I have read that in 2014 to become certified you will have had to complete residency and getting into those CAMPEP programs is VERY competitive and the field is also saturated. So if I get into a graduate program and do not get into a residency program what are my options?
Will I be better off to choose another career, if so are there any suggestions as what else I could do with my BS in the medical field? I was looking into Dosimetry I saw you can get certified after a one year program, anyone who works in this field please give me your opinion about your job (outlook, responsibilities, etc).
I don't want to pursue MP if my chances of actually becoming a MP are as slim as I have read.
