Hey everyone, I'm new to the physics forum and I'm wondering what is the best path to go into medical physics? I've heard different things and don't really know where to start. To give you some back ground I'm currently stationed in North Carolina and just started college at community college in a pre engineering program. I was going to transfer to NC state for their Nuclear Engineering program then get my masters in medical physics. Atleast that's what an advisor from state recommended that I do. What I'm wondering is it better for me to go straight into a medical physics program or do I need to go through the nuclear engineering route? And what are some good schools to look into for medical physics? I was looking into UNC and East Carolina University. I'm honestly confused on where to start and any help/advice you guys could give would be much appreciated!
