Mission Statement

The mission of the MS in Medical Physics program at Hofstra University is to impart necessary and sufficient scientific and clinical knowledge in medical physics encompassing therapeutic, diagnostic, nuclear medicine, and health physics applications, and to inculcate requisite elements of critical thinking and professional conduct so its graduates are empowered with the assets of knowledge, intelligence, resourcefulness, scientific enquiry, judgment, character, and ethical conduct as they prepare to pursue higher education in the field or enter the medical physics profession as either residents or junior physicists supervised by qualified medical physicists, or junior research investigators in academia or industry.
