Goals and Objectives

The goal of the Medical Physics Graduate Program at the University of Miami is to train students to develop the necessary academic framework as well as a thorough practical understanding in medical physics, including areas of diagnostic radiologic physics, health physics, nuclear medicine, and a designated focus on radiation therapy. The program, serving both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, ensures that the students receive adequate didactic and clinical training to enter Medical Physics Residency programs. The M.S. students are trained with an emphasis on developing skills necessary for clinical medical physicists, while Ph.D. students participate in research projects during their graduate studies and are trained to become independent researchers in the field of medical physics and conduct impactful research or develop novel technologies. Graduate students trained through the program are required to take the American Board of Radiology (ABR)1 examination in order to practice in the field of medical physics. The program is jointly managed by the Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering and the Department of Radiation Oncology2, Miller School of Medicine. The ultimate goal for the program is to establish a medical physics training center, in conjunction with the Medical Physics Residency Program in the Department of Radiation Oncology.
