Physics in Action – Master of Science Degree in Medical Physics

Master of Science (M.S.) in Medical Physics program at Howard University is launched to provide opportunities for African American and under-represented communities a learning platform where they are introduced to fundamental concepts of medical physics. The graduate students are exposed to a wide range of topics demonstrating physics in action from diagnostic imaging, radiological medicine, nuclear medicine, and health and radiation physics.

The graduate program has a philosophy of providing all graduate life experiences, such as teaching assistantship, graduate research along with clinical skills necessary to operate as early career medical physicist.

In line with Howard Forward, this state-of-the-art program will strive to building a diverse and inclusive environment for people of various colors, backgrounds, and cultures. The culture of promoting under-served individuals at Howard is the cornerstone of Medical Physics.
