Under the direction of Dr Izabella Barreto, Assistant Professor, the Medical Physics Undergraduate Internship Program (MPUI) provides current UF undergraduate students with a one-semester unpaid internship opportunity to maximize their exposure to Medical Physics.
Throughout the semester, students will be engaged in a multitude of activities, to include assisting faculty and graduate assistants with clinical duties and research projects. Opportunities will include:
- Medical Physics Quality Control Shadowing
- Radiological Clinical Exam Observations
- Medical Physics Research Endeavors
Interns will log their activities (4-6 hours required each week) and submit monthly reports, which will be reviewed during one-on-one meetings with the program director.
In the video below, Dr Barreto answers questions commonly asked by students. This video was made in collaboration with the Public Education Committee of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine AAPM).
