The Department of Radiological Sciences Graduate Program in Medical Physics is comprised of faculty physicists from both the Department of Radiological Sciences and the Department of Radiation Oncology. With over a century of combined experience in the field of Medical Physics, the faculty governing the program provides both state-of-the-art research opportunities and education experience. The faculty in each department provide mentoring to graduate students who gain experience both in the clinical and scientific realms.  

​Within the Departments of Radiological Sciences and Radiation Oncology, the medical physics faculty
active pursue research in a variety of fields, exhibiting a strong ​presence at professional conferences, and regularly publishing in peer-reviewed journal​s. Many graduate student research thesis project become published abstracts and journal submissions, presenting a showcase of local talent on a national ​stage. While the specifics of each faculty's research interest maybe best investigated via the lists of recent publications on their individual web-pages, the topics include, yet are not limited too:

Monte Carlo Simulation of Charged Particles
Modeling Radio-Biological Response
Proton Radiotherapy Workflow
Patient Quality Assurance Design and Efficiency
