These seminars, held once per week, are required for all graduate students in the Medical Physics Specialization of the biophysics program so as to introduce them to the research actively being pursued by the program¿s faculty and senior graduate students as well as to allow a forum for discussion of current topics involving the medical physics practicum program in the hospital setting. Discussions include the full range of professionalism and ethics topics. Guest lecturers will also be invited to speak, and research presentations by personnel within the program will be offered for discussion. Imaging physics seminars meet once per week for 2 ¿ 3 hours and include discussions and presentations by members of the group and invited guests. Generally, at each session each member of the group will describe his/her research progress in addition to formal presentations followed by question and answer periods. Therapy physics seminars meet similarly but separately. Once students have chosen their advisor and thesis topic, they will generally go to the MP seminar relevant to their primary interest; however, beginning students are expected to attend both seminars.
