At McMaster University an undergraduate program in Honours Applied Physics (Medical and Health Physics Option) was introduced in the mid 1970s. This was revised and relaunched as Honours Medical and Health Physics in the early to mid 1990s.
In parallel, a graduate program (M.Sc. only) in Health and Radiation Physics began in the late 1970s. This was followed in the early 1990s by a program offering M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Medical Physics.
