    Other Second thoughts on Medical Physics PhD

    To address Choppy: I have spend some time with a medical physicist at our local cancer center to help with the QA and monthly calibrations of some of the systems like the True beam and such. I found the task to be extremely mundane, and sort of mindless. I guess I am unaware of what tasks a...

    Summer program project ideas

    This is a science program for Juniors and Seniors that are either from low income families, and/or soon-to-be first generation college students. The director literally told me I can focus on one area of a science or go very broad. I was also told I can do a big project or a few small projects...

    Summer program project ideas
