About

The Medical Physics program of the University at Buffalo with training in medical imaging, radiation therapy and nuclear medicine physics prepares students for careers in research, teaching or hospital practice.

Overview

About the Program

The goal of the Medical Physics program of the University at Buffalo is to provide a sound academic foundation and practical experience for those planning to pursue a career in research, teaching or clinical medical physics in either of the subspecialty areas of medical imaging physics, therapeutic radiation physics or nuclear medicine physics.

Graduates are prepared for careers in these subspecialties or the continuation of their education in a postgraduate or residency program. The program comprises both academic and practical training components with the practical training taking place in affiliated hospitals.

The medical physics program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs, CAMPEP.

The medical physics group comprises faculty in multiple UB and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center departments, post-doctoral staff, graduate student assistants, and undergraduate students with additional contributions from bioengineering, clinical and allied faculty as well as technical and administrative staff. The Medical Physics Program faculty conduct research, teach and practice clinical medical physics in affiliated hospitals.
