From Airplanes to Atoms: The Journey of a Medical Physicist

Speaker

Abstract

Ever wonder what Airplanes and Atoms have in common? Well Dr. McConnell loves both of them - and they have both influenced her career as a clinical medical physicist. She will speak about her journey from an entirely different career in aerospace to a PhD in medical physics, her role as a resident, and now her role as an Assistant Professor. Her advice to students is "Don’t treat graduate school as school. Treat it as a career. Network with as many people as you can, get involved on campus, and treat your research as your product. Market yourself and your work. And don’t forget to have fun!"
