    Should I give up on astrophysics and study something else?

    I don't pretend to know where the grads are going- just that they are apparently employed. (Including in grad school, I presume). The study was done by Georgetown, which is not a disreputable institution. It's just a data point for the OP to use, I'm sure he can track it down and decide for himself.

    Should I give up on astrophysics and study something else?

    Actually, astrophysics might be awesome right now Hey, I don't know that much about this as my field is nuclear, but I've got a friend who was trying to talk me into going into astrophysics and he told me about this: http://graphicsweb.wsj.com/documents/NILF1111/#term= In 2011...

    Residencies in Medical Physics difficult to obtain

    As the lowly fodder for these programs :tongue: , could I ask if it would be useful to take the physics GRE if it's not required?

    So which physics phds are useful for industry?

    I have the same dilemma you have. I have a summer undergraduate fellowship in medical physics coming up, so I'm hoping to know which way to go by the end of it. I think it is getting to be a more specialized field- that is, people go into a medical physics program for their PhDs if that's what...

    Residencies in Medical Physics difficult to obtain

    Ok, I see where a residency is really necessary. That does makes sense to me now. But I don't understand is on the one hand you say getting a PhD in order to do clinical work is idiotic, but on the other hand you say residencies strongly prefer PhDs. And residencies are now required to work as a...

    Residencies in Medical Physics difficult to obtain

    Thanks for your insight. I'm just starting out on my med physics career, am a junior right now. I will be working in a med physicist's lab this summer. In a way I'm afraid of kind of falling in love with the field and then finding no jobs at the end of the rainbow. How are job prospects if you...

    Is Med School worth it if your dreams lie elsewhere?

    My parents are doctors and they're trying to discourage my little brother from going into medicine, except maybe in something in a related field, but not an MD. They say it's too much work and stress, and they're not really sure what will happen with the new health law. I think my dad is going...
