I've been seriously considering going to grad school for medical physics for past couple of months. During that time, I've read some posts on the internet and visited the medical physics department at a local hospital a number of times. Based on my admittedly limited experience, I've found the day-to-day routine of the clinical medical physicist to be rather mundane and uninteresting (quality assurance, dealing with federal regulations, etc.). I can understand that every job has boring aspects, but I was hoping clinical medical physics would have a little more medicine and/or physics in it! So I thought maybe research in medical physics would be interesting (neuroimaging and cog. science appeals to me), but from what I've read on the internet the CAMPEP-accredited schools are primarily concerned with training clinical medical physicists (please correct me if I'm wrong). So I'm having doubts about applying to a medical physics program, and maybe I would be better off doing something else? Basically I'm seeking assurance that there is fun and interesting research going on in medical physics and it is not unreasonably difficult to get involved in such projects (or assurance that clinical duties aren't actually as boring as they seem to be). Thanks in advance!
