Become a leader in the emerging field of medical physics, fusing your expertise in physics with improved medical care. This is a dynamic profession that applies the concepts of physics to the diagnosis and treatment of human disease, with career paths that include academic, research, and clinical settings.
With an advanced degree in medical physics, you will be empowered to contribute cutting-edge medical care, whether in China or diverse international spheres. And there’s no better place to receive your professional training than through a program that delivers state-of-the-art classroom instruction, clinical exposure, and research/scholarship mentoring by faculty with professional clinical and research experience at leading medical centers in the United States and China. Build upon your talent for physics and apply it to the real-life needs of medicine with a master of science in medical physics at Duke Kunshan University.
Comprehensive Medical Physics Training
Duke Kunshan’s MP program offers extensive training in three major medical physics tracks: Radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging, and nuclear medicine. Students can choose to increase emphasis in specific tracks through year-2 course selections and through choice of scholarship or thesis projects.
