Students may take the national medical physicist examination after completing four years of practical training. Students must apply for the right to take the examination from the Education Committee of Medical Physicists (Professor Petro Julkunen, chair, University of Eastern Finland) at least five weeks before the date of the examination. The application must show the completed practical training up to that date (accompanied by a staff register and instructor´s statement of the contents of the practical training) as well as the date on which and place where the radiation safety examination was taken.
