I've recently got admitted into the medical physics master program at Duke and U Penn and don't know which one to choose. I'm now having a proton therapy thesis for my bachelor degree and I like it pretty much but not sure if it's a lifelong career choice. U Penn has a proton center, also they have a good record for getting students into residency program, but don't have a phd program. Duke has a bigger department,more professors and a phd program. My goal is to work in a prestigious hospital and I'm not so keen on a phd program, but in order to have better career development, I can also do a phd. So the problem remains whether to continue proton and whether to do a phd afterwards. Could anyone in this field or know about these two programs give me some suggestions? I'm supposed to make a decision before Apr 15th. Thanks so much!
