Hello, I am an undergrad student not currently studying physics (doing pre-med atm), but considering either switching programs, or, if possible applying for the MSTP MD/PhD program. An area that I'm interested in on the physics side is Medical Physics. I have several questions about this path and was wondering if you could answer them? 1. Would you say it is normal for Physics majors to switch over to Med School incase they either didn't get accepted into the MSTP, or if they later on decided not to pursue an advanced degree in physics? 2. What are the job prospects for medical physics degrees? If you do work in medical physics, would you say that employment in that area is fairly high? And if possible could you give an example of a typical day at the job? 3. Would you even recommend pursuing a degree in physics? I know this is a very subjective question, but whenever I look up something like this I always get mixed responses. On one hand I hear stories about PhDs not getting tenure, or a position in a research facility, and are instead stuck doing some low-paying job with little relevance to their field of study, but on the other hand, I hear stories expressing the joy of being part of the advancement of modern physics knowledge. What's your take on this? I know these are probably questions I should be asking to profs in the faculty, which I have, but I sometimes forget to ask all the questions I wanted to ask. Thanks in advance.
