Graduate Program in Medical Physics

The Graduate Program in Medical Physics at the University of Chicago offers research training leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Primary areas of research interests by the program faculty include four components, namely, Physics of Diagnostic Radiology, Physics of Nuclear Medicine, Physics of Magnetic Resonance Imaging/Spectroscopy, and Physics of Radiation Therapy.  Unique features of this program are the faculty’s focused effort on research in medical imaging and radiation oncology, and on the training of high-level medical physicists.

The Graduate Programs in Medical Physics within the Department of Radiology has a training grant from the National Institutes of Health for pre-doctoral student support.

The Graduate Program in Medical Physics currently consists of 21 faculty, who hold appointments in either the Department of Radiology or the Department of Radiation & Cellular Oncology and secondary appointments in the Committee on Medical Physics  Most research projects involve collaboration between basic scientists and clinical colleagues in the department.
