    What does medical physics have to do with cancer?

    • admin says:

      Medical physics graduate could practice clinically as part of the healthcare team of a cancer patient. They design and implement the radiation therapy required to combat the spread of the disease in the body. They could also research the best way to dose the cancer cells with minimal effect on the healthy ones around them.

    hi how did you get involved in this career? Could you do this in africa

    • admin says:

      I become involve in this career because of interest and desire to contribute to the use of physics in medicine. Before my on-going training in medical physics, i studied physics (solid state), optical electronics, and education up to graduate level. Nevertheless, I took over 30 credit hours of graduate didactic courses required by the American Association of Physics in Medicine, and American Board of Radiology over the last 3 years. At the momemnt, I am at the stage of begininig clinical experience and taking the part 1 of ABR board exam.It is quite an exciting journey into a bright and great field.
      Yes, we can practice in Africa. Every hospital has a medical physicist functioning as either a radiation safety officer, radiation therapist and many more. I do meet some of my professional colleagues from Africa at the annual Radiological Society of North America meetings.

    why do you want to treat cancer? is someone in your family affected by it?

    • admin says:

      I have friends and mentors that are affected by the disease. Some are are survivors and some lost the battle. We hope look forward to meeting the departed ones someday when they wake up from the sleep. Human kind needs to beat cancer, and we will at some point.

    what are you hoping to do with your new degree?

    • admin says:

      I hope to use the knowledge to instruct my pre-med students, and also serve in clinical settings as part of the care-giver team. I may also volunteer in hospitals or medical missions around the world. Medical physics is global, and so is its network and applications.

    What is ‘systems biology’ and how do you use it in your work?

    • admin says:

      The biology of our system is basically our anatomy and physiology. We need that solid understanding to assist the patients under our care and collaborate with other team members.

    why do you like science lmao ew

    • admin says:

      I started learning science and math at a very young age since I do not consider my self good enough for arts and social sciences. We also need greater diversity in science and engineering. General education is the way to go, we need to function across the spectrum of science, math, arts, social sciences and others.

    who is that woman you are married to? she is beautiful 😉

    • admin says:

      Let us keep the discussion to cancer, its diagnosis and teatment, and how medical physics is advancing the frontiers.
