Increasing Minority Representation in Medical Physics

From Radiological Sciences

The goal this NIH-funded project is to increase the participation of Hispanic Students in Cancer Research by creating a Graduate Program in Medical Physics at master's level at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and linking the program with the existing Graduate Program in Medical Physics at the Ph.D. level from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA). The implementation of the Graduate Program at UTEP is being assisted by UTHSCSA via collaborative research, 8 weeks of Summer workshops (yearly) and Distance Learning in Medical Physics on a website developed at San Antonio.

The main objective of the program is to create a permanent pipeline extending from El Paso high schools, to an MS in Physics (Medical Physics track) at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and eventually ending in a PhD program in Medical Physics in the Radiation Oncology Department at UTHSCSA.

This training program ended in November, 2009
