The Medical Dosimetry program is a selective/competitive admissions program. Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission, as the number of qualified applicants may exceed the number of available enrollment spaces. Requesting reinstatement/readmission does not also guarantee automatic readmission into the program. All applications are managed through the Common Application System (CAS).

An applicant is eligible to interview once they meet the prerequisite and application criteria. Selections are made by a committee formed by volunteer faculty and clinical preceptors affiliated with the program.

Factors involved in student selection:


  • Number of clinics willing to take a student.
  • Applicants interview score. The score is calculated using a preapproved rubric for 6-8 questions. All applicants are asked the same set of questions.
  • Applicants rank their preference of clinics for placement. I.e., List the top 3 choices.
  • Recommendations from clinic management and/or staff.

Out of state (non-local):

  • Applicants interview score. The score is calculated using a preapproved rubric for 6-8 questions. All applicants are asked the same set of questions.
  • Recommendations from clinic management and/or staff.

Acceptance is contingent upon clinical site approval from JRCERT, completion of program prerequisites, transfer credits, background check and immunization status.

Clinical Affiliation contract terms are written to provide assurance the clinic remains available to the student for the duration of the program.

Once a student is selected and placed, the program makes every effort to maintain clinical affiliation. If a clinic disaffiliates before a student begins or during their clinical rotation, the program will make every effort to reassign a clinical placement. Due to limited availability, the program cannot guarantee a replacement clinic. Additionally, any clinical site reserves the right to exclude a student from its premises. If a student is asked to leave their clinical site due to their behavior or lack of competency progress, the program cannot guarantee that another clinical site will be available. The student may therefore need to leave the program. Expulsion from one’s clinical site could result in dismissal from the program.
