Future Students for Medical Dosimetry, M.S.
GVSU students receive didactic, laboratory, and clinical experiences in both existing and emerging radiation oncology, including treatment planning, simulation, quality assurance, brachytherapy, external beam therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, intraoperative radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, volumetric modulated arc therapy and total body irradiation.
The GVSU Medical Dosimetry program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Students who receive a M.S. degree in Medical Dosimetry from Grand Valley are eligible for the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board (MDCB) national credentialing certification examination in medical dosimetry. Upon certification by the MDCB, graduates will hold the title of Certified Medical Dosimetrist (CMD).
Individuals who have been involved in a criminal proceeding or charged with or convicted of a crime may not be eligible for national certification by the MDCB. Because this certification is available to graduates of the medical dosimetry program as part of preparation for clinical practice, students to whom this may apply are strongly advised to work with the MDCB for pre-application review of eligibility for certification from their website at www.mdcb.org. The MDCB may be contacted by phone at 856-439-1631 for more information go to https://www.mdcb.org/examinfo/eligibility.htm
