About

The Medical Physics program of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston offers the Specialized Master of Science degree and the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees through the MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Overview

Program Features

Two UT components, UTHealth and MD Anderson, jointly support the Medical Physics program of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, with the majority of faculty and students, as well as the program administration, working at MD Anderson.

The S.M.S. degree is a professional master's degree that prepares the student for clinical practice as a medical physicist. The Ph.D. degree is intended for the student who is preparing for a career that includes a strong research component. The two degree tracks have similar didactic curricula, but the S.M.S. research project is typically more clinically focused and shorter in duration than the research work for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.
