Radiation Health Physics - Pre Med

Radiation health physics is a specialized program in the School of Nuclear Science and Engineering for students with a professional interest in the field of radiation protection, also known as health physics. It involves an integrated study of the physical aspects of ionizing and nonionizing radiation, their biological effects, and the methods used to protect people and their environment from radiation hazards while still enabling the beneficial uses of radiation and radioactive material.
