The residency in medical physics accepts 2 residents per year for a 2-year program, plus 2-3 additional physics residents are accepted into community affiliate programs in Arkansas and Indiana. 

Our research programs encompass multiple areas of investigation including clinical and translational science. Clinical research includes participation in cooperative group and industry-sponsored studies in addition to innovative investigator-initiated trials. Many investigations involve our faculty scientists working collaboratively with investigators in the NCI-designated Markey Cancer Center, providing access to outstanding shared services and other support that enhances research opportunities.
