Internationally trained medical physicists who do not meet the CAMPEP requirements in section D.2.7 but who wish to obtain Membership in the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine may be eligible for a bridging program. This program is designed to transition established, practicing medical physicists to clinical practice in Canada. Eligibility requirements and program details are described in Section G of the Regulations.
Physicists who are interested in pursuing a bridging program must obtain employment at a Canadian Institution in a Clinical Medical Physics position. A structured training program is designed by the physicist and host institution and submitted to the CCPM Board for approval. The minimum length of the program depends on the physicist’s level of experience. At the successful completion of this program, the candidate shall be able to practice as a clinical medical physicist in a Canadian Institution at a level equivalent to having completed a CAMPEP accredited residency program.
