Medical Physics Special Libraries & Museums


Medicine and Public Health - Sketch of exhibit on cancer treatments, Digital ID 1677809, New York Public LibraryI am a huge fan of special libraries, and I have a couple of medical physicists in the family, so I thought I would see how many relevant libraries and museums I could find. Medical physicists work in hospitals, and they work on developing treatments for cancer. Medical physicists are required to complete a master's degree, and they usually become board certified, meaning that they pass a three-part test, which they must take in three separate years.
