About

Overview

The goal of the Medical Physics program at University of Minnesota is to prepare students for entering a medical physics residency program in therapy or imaging physics and/or to pursue a career in teaching and research in medical physics. 

The program governance includes the Director of Graduate Studies (DGS), the Steering Committee, and the Admissions Committee. The DGS has many duties as specified by the Univeristy of Minnesota. The Steering Committee addresses the long term needs of the program and any short term issues. The Admissions Committee reviews applications for admissions and makes admissions decisions.

Program History

This graduate program was started as an interdisciplinary graduate program under the name Biophysical Sciences in the 1950s by Dr. Otto Schmidt to encourage collaboration among biologists, chemists, and physicists. Then, as now, faculty had their salaried appointments in various home departments, including departments within the Medical School, but participated in Biophysical Sciences because of their interests in collaborative, interdisciplinary projects.
