    Other Medical Physics: Masters or Ph.D?

    Is it naïve to think that it is rare for a PhD physicist to obtain a clinical position? I understand that a smaller centers it's more likely for MSc physicists to get hired, but what about at larger centers?

    Other Medical Physics: Masters or Ph.D?

    Honestly, I do not really care how long it takes me because I thoroughly enjoy school. The more I talk about it the more I think a PhD would be better suited to me.

    Other Medical Physics: Masters or Ph.D?

    I go to a small liberal arts college, and none of my physics faculty are very familiar with the field of medical physics. There is no medical physics program at my school. I have consulted the physicists I currently work with, and they all got in to the field before there was the requirement of...

    I Voltage drop: What do we mean when we say that voltage drops across a resistor?

    Recall that the unit of voltage is the volt, which is equal to one joule per coulomb. So if you have a one volt battery, an electron passing through it will gain potential energy equal to the voltage of the battery times the charge of the particle. So yes, the particles passing through batteries...

    Other Medical Physics: Masters or Ph.D?

    Hello everyone, I am a current undergrad physics major looking to pursue a career in clinical medical physics. I currently have an internship in radiation therapy physics and absolutely love it. I have recently become aware of the issue there is with medical physics residencies favoring Ph. D...
