Graduates of the School of Medical Dosimetry are eligible for national certification by the
Medical Dosimetry Certification Board after six
months of clinical experience. This is open to change at any time by the Medical Dosimetry
Certification Board (MDCB), which is independent of our organization. The applicant, student or
graduate are urged to contact the MDCB with questions of eligibility at any time.
Our admission policy is designed to find the best match of student interest, achievement and
ability, with our own program's objectives, goals and plan of assessment and development. We do
not favor one group of applicants' race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, age, gender or
sex. Similarly, we do not discriminate based on race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, age,
gender or sex, or economic status. We only favor the applicants that are best suited to enter the
program based on their academic excellence, interest in our program and professional commitment
and achievement. Such metrics are evaluated from the applications submitted, the recommendation
letters and the applicants' performance during an onsite interview.
Tuition and Fees
The value of the program for each student is $32,792.00. As part of the program value, the
accepted student will receive an educational stipend of $12,792.00. In consideration of the
value of the program, including the educational stipend, the student agrees to full time
employment with UMMC as a dosimetrist for a period of eighteen (18) months following graduation
from the program, if a position is available.
Students who are employed after graduation by UMMC are paid a competitive salary during their
eighteen-month obligation to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Notably, if a position
is not available upon completion of the program, the student does not have to pay back any part
of the $32,792.00 value of the program. If an applicant is accepted into the program and wishes
not to enter the commitment to work for 18 months, a one time fee will be due of $32,792.00 to
cover the value of the program.
In such instance, the student will receive the stipend portion of that fee back in the amount of
$12,792.00 as a salary during their one-year employment at UMMC. If a student should need or
wish to breach the agreement to commit to employment after graduation or at any time during the
18 months employment after graduation, a one time fee of $32,792.00 shall be due. It should be
noted that both the tuition and the contractual obligations are reviewed on an annual basis and
are subject to change.
Outside of the one-time tuition fee, students may enroll for on-site parking at a rate set by the
hospital for employees. The payment for parking is taken as a deduction from their paycheck.
UMMC does not pay for travel to or from an interview, and does not cover room and board expenses
incurred during the interview process.
