Hi everyone, as per the forum section I'm looking for some career advice. In 6 weeks time I will be finishing a degree in physics with medical physics and bioengineering. I have applied to the trainee medical physics program with the NHS and am on the reserve interview list. Because of the high possibility of not getting an interview I'm thinking of other possible routes. I will be applying for phd's in Ireland (where I live) and England but if I don't get any I was wondering about the possibility of becoming a dosimetrist for a year or two for some experience. I know in Ireland you can become a dosimetrist from either being a radiation therapist or having a physics degree but I was wondering about in the US? Would a degree in the above be enough to get a job in dosimetry in america? I have 7 months planning experience as part of my degree in a hospital in Ireland. This was only conformal planning but I was fully trained. Also I would only get a year visa as I don't wish to stay any longer so would this hinder job possibilities? I know I have a lot of questions but finally I was wondering if experience in dosimetry would help getting into medical physics training programs in the future? Particularly the NHS STP one? I know it's not likely many people here will have this specific information but any advice is greatly appreciated.
