In addition to basic campus resources (classrooms; computer systems; specialized hardware/software packages; libraries; office space; laboratories; etc), multiple clinical facilities are also accessible. Although many are in use during the day, resident and faculty access is readily available by scheduling in advance , and often in the late afternoon.
Medical Physics faculty provide training to residents and authorize use of equipment to ensure safe operation and continued readiness for clinical needs. Clinical equipment may be scheduled for resident use at any time of the day. A number of other clinical facilities are located at outlying clinics. Because these facilities are located off campus, they are not as readily accessed by residents, but they do provide the opportunity to experience and observe a spectrum of clinical environments and patient populations.
Our test equipment includes numerous instruments, as well as all necessary phantoms for clinical equipment accreditation programs and more. Dosimetry instrumentation includes typical test equipment in addition to a Landauer microStar dosimetry system for patient dosimetry and clinical projects.
