Health Physics Enrollments and Degrees Survey ORISE reports analyze the number of health physics degrees granted at U.S. universities

The 2021-2022 ORISE Health Physics Enrollments and Degrees Survey (.PDF, 218 KB) reports degrees granted for the academic years September 2020 – August 2021 and September 2021 – August 2022 and enrollments for Fall 2022. Nineteen health physics academic programs were surveyed with all 19 responding. Degree data were provided by 13 programs for 2021 and 2022, and 12 programs reported positive levels of enrollment in 2022. Six schools indicated their programs either had already phased out or were in the process of doing so: Bloomsburg University, Georgetown University, San Diego State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Maine, and University of Tennessee. Additionally, University of Nevada, Las Vegas did not provide numeric data but noted that the School of Integrated Health Sciences provides health physics curricula for B.S. and M.S. degrees and a health physics option for Ph.D. degrees. The enrollments and degrees data include students majoring in health physics or in an option program equivalent to a major.
