Education & Training

Medical Physics Graduate Program

Our CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics Graduate Program offers the Specialized Master of Science degree and the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees through The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston.

Imaging Physics Clinical Residency Program

Our CAMPEP-accredited Residency Program in Diagnostic Imaging Physics is a two-year clinical training program for medical physicists who intend to work in diagnostic imaging physics. We also offer a hybrid program, combining two years of postdoctoral research with the two-year residency training program. Both the residency and the hybrid program meet the clinical experience requirements of the American Board of Radiology for board certification.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translational Cancer Nanotechnology

The goal of this program is to train scientists who will transfer the great promise of nanotechnology into clinical reality. This novel training program educates future leaders in the broad field of nanotechnology with specific interests in cancer-related applications, who are keenly aware of the needs and demands of clinical environment as well as of major challenges of translational research.

Postdoctoral Fellowships

Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunities are offered for talented scientists to enhance their research skills by collaborating with an individual faculty member to work on specific funded research projects for terms of up to five years.

Special Course Offerings

The department occasionally offers special courses that are of interest to practicing medical physicists.

A few of our recent courses are described below. Please inquire about future courses if you are interested in taking any of these topics.
