Medical Physics - M.S.

The M.S. in Medical Physics program will provide training for individuals interested in pursuing a career in Medical Physics. The 43 hour Master's program will provide didactic training in the fundamentals of medical and health physics, radiobiology, radiological physics and radiation dosimetry, nuclear medicine, medical imaging, as well as research (Thesis required) and clinical experience (clinical rotations in local hospitals) to provide the experience needed by practicing medical physicists.
