Graduate Medical Health Physics Program

Duke Graduate Health Physics Education

Ph.D. students trained with a specialty in Health Physics may find employment as Radiation Safety Officers at universities or large laboratories, or they may be employed as faculty in Health Physics training programs. Specialists in Health Physics will also help meet the growing demand for workers trained in radiation safety following the federal government's new initiatives in homeland security.
