Four years ago, treatment of my thyroid cancer introduced me to the field of medical physics. I graduated from Michigan State University with a Ph.D. in theoretical nuclear physics. I was fortunate to be accepted to the medical physics residency program at Rhode Island Hospital. Here, I have the opportunity to learn about many state-of-art radiation therapy treatment technologies; linear accelerators, CyberKnife, Gamma Knife, and Brachytherapy. Now, late into my residency, I realize the role and impact of a medical physicist on patient care and feel prepared to enter the profession.
