Research prior to Medical Physics Program App

Hi all,

I am starting a Physics MS program in the Fall and have a few different opportunities to do research. I am wondering where I would best be positioning myself to continue on to a Medical Physics program. Which area of research would be best?

One I am considering is condensed matter physics research using NMR, I figured this might be good because of working with NMR.

Another, is nuclear and particle physics at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator. I don't have many details on this.

Anyway, my options are somewhat limited but I thought it would be best to get some opinions on this before pursuing anything further. My main goal is to apply for a Medical Physics program after I complete my MS.

Thank you!

I'm not sure either one by subject alone would be better than the other. Both seem related at arm's length, so I would aim for the one you think you will enjoy the most and be most productive in.

Thanks for the response. I guess I figured as much. I am happy to work with what I've got. :)
