Per U.S. Federal Regulations, §668.43 (2019 Rule), and in compliance with the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) Manual version 19.2, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo ("Jacobs School") provides the following disclosure related to the educational requirements for professional licensure and certification.
This Disclosure is strictly limited to the Jacobs School’s determination of whether its educational programs, Masters of Science in Medical Physics and Doctorate of Philosophy in Medical Physics, that if successfully completed, would be sufficient to meet the educational licensure or certification requirements in a State for practice of medical physics. The Jacobs School cannot provide verification of an individual’s ability to meet licensure or certification requirements unrelated to its educational programming. Such individual determinations are made by state licensing boards, and are fact-specific determinations.
This disclosure does not provide any guarantee that any particular state licensure or certification entity will approve or deny your application. Furthermore, this disclosure does not account for changes in state law or regulation that may affect your application for licensure and occur after this disclosure has been made. Enrolled students and prospective students are strongly encouraged to contact their State’s licensure entity using the links provided to review all licensure and certification requirements imposed by their state(s) of choice.
The Medical Physics program at the Jacobs School is accredited by the New York State Department of Education and the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs, CAMPEP.
The Jacobs School has designated an educational program curriculum for a Masters of Science in Medical Physics and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Medical Physics, that if successfully completed, is sufficient to meet the eligibility requirement for Part 1 of American Board of Radiology certification. Successful certification by the American Board of Radiology can lead to licensure and certification for Medical Physics practice in New York State.
After making all reasonable efforts, the Jacobs School cannot determine whether its educational program curriculum for a Masters of Science in Medical Physics or a Doctorate of Philosophy in Medical Physics, that if successfully completed, is sufficient to meet the licensure and certification requirements for advanced practice in the following states:
New York State prides itself in the high quality of its licensed and certified professionals. For the protection of its citizens, each license and certificate has requirements that individuals must meet in order to be licensed or certified in New York State.
SUNY’s academic programs leading to licensure or certification are carefully designed to meet and exceed these State requirements. This is a role SUNY plays in protecting the public.
Other states frequently have their own requirements, so if your goal is to practice in another state, this disclosure will help you check to see what that state requires.
