Courses and academic programs are approved by the Associate Dean for Graduate Education in the Medical School, the Academic Health Center, and the Office of the Provost.
The Program Steering Committee addresses the long term needs of the program and the contents of the Medical Physics program. This committee provides long term direction and vision for the program. The committee also addresses course selection within the program, conducts evaluations of courses within the program, plans the addition of other courses to the program, and ensures that the courses required for continued CAMPEP accreditation of the Medical Physics program are available. The Steering Committee meets twice a year to evaluate these goals.
Student evaluation of individual classes is conducted by the Office of Measurement Services of the University of Minnesota. The results of the survey are used to both improve the classes and as direct evidence of instructor teaching effectiveness.
