What will I learn?

The program is made up of faculty members with primary appointments in departments that include radiation oncology, radiology, physics, engineering, computer science, physiology, dentistry, and biochemistry. In addition to providing clinical experience in areas such as radiation oncology, radiation oncology, radiation safety and quality assurance, the program is active in research and provides graduate level training in medical physics. The goal of the program is to prepare students (1) for further education, teaching, and research in medical physics, (2) to qualify to enter a medical physics residency program in radiation oncology or diagnostic radiology, and (3) to provide the mathematical and technical knowledge needed to succeed in the increasingly complex field of medical physics.
