Education and Training
Educational programs sponsored by the Division of Medical Physics and Engineering emphasize the union of normally disparate fields such as engineering, physics, computational science, and biology, with the ultimate aim of developing safer and more precise treatments for cancer patients. The doctoral degree, residency, and postgraduate certificate programs all heavily emphasize research, with varying amounts of clinical focus, and admission is highly competitive.
Our faculty are interested in the following research topics: cloud and GPU-based high-performance computing in medical physics and imaging, automatic radiotherapy treatment planning, image-guided radiotherapy, 3D/4D and low-dose and dynamic cone beam computed tomography, Monte Carlo simulation, and tumor tracking and motion compensation in real time.
Our training programs include:
- Medical Physics Residency
- Biomedical Engineering (BME) Graduate Program - Medical Physics Track
- Postdoctoral Medical Physics Certificate Program
- Program for Excellence in Intelligent Medicine (PEIM)
- Medical Artificial Intelligence and Automation (MAIA) Lab
