examination, separately. This examination will be conducted by RP & AD. The candidates may appear 
for this examination after the successful completion of the Dip.R.P. course.  
The requirement of Medical Physicists in India is increasing due to increase in the number of 
Radiotherapy Centres to cater to the growing need of managing cancer treatment. About 90% of 
candidates are therefore generally employed with good emoluments within three months of their 
successful completion of the course. There is a scope for deserving candidates to get on-the-job training

treatment equipments), Mumbai, for a period of at least one year. This training will enhance their further
