This semester, we offer MEDPHY 210 Radiation Protection and MEDPHY 220 Therapeutic Medical Physics. In addition we continue with MEDPHY 251 Seminar in Medical Physics, see the seminar schedule. This seminar series has been running every semester since fall of 2000, and is now in its 2nd semester as an official medical physics course. Organized by Drs. Lo and Samei, the seminars feature speakers covering a wide range of topics in medical physics. Thanks to the publicity and free ipods (see 12/14/2005 story below) associated with us being selected as part of the Duke Digital Initiative, the class sets a new record of 51 students! This semester we are proud to present the famous scientific writing expert Dr. George Gopen, 2 MD faculty from radiology, Dr. Tourassi in a sequel to her well-received biostatistics lecture, and various other medical physics program speakers. Our outside speaker this semester will be Dr. William Hendee, editor of the Medical Physics journal, whose visit will coincide with our March open house and PhD student interviews.
