Application Process

The MARP Residency program will accept one resident per year on a competitive basis. Only applicants with a MS or PhD in medical physics from a CAMPEP accredited program will be considered for admission.

Applications will be submitted through the AAPM Medical Physics Residency Application Process (MP-RAP). All application materials will be submitted through this database, and each applicant will be required to submit:

  • Person information (name, address, contact information

  • ABR certification status

Applications will be reviewed by the Program Steering Committee. Applicants under consideration of appointment will be invited to San Antonio, TX for an onsite interview with the program director and residency faculty. Interviews will be conducted between January – March of each year.


MARP will use the Medical Physics Matching Program for final candidate selection ( Applicants should be sure to register for the Match Program in order to rank the MARP residency program and should be sure to be aware of the match rank submission deadline. 

When a resident has been matched to the program an offer letter will be sent. Once an applicant has been selected for admission, the following documents will be required:

Note that the candidate is responsible for completing the application for the TMP license and providing the necessary documentation.
