Congratulations to our grad students, Aria Malhotra, Cassidy Northway and Justin Poon, for passing the first ever Medical Physics Comprehensive Exam at UBC. A lot of hard work went into crafting the specialty exam, and we’re extremely pleased that it was successfully administered at the beginning of September. We’re all looking forward to being able to safely celebrate these and so many other achievements in the near future.

Hi there! As you can probably tell, we’ve been a little tied up, and haven’t kept our website as up to date as we’d like. Sorry about that! We really do like sharing our news with you, and we’re glad you’ve popped by to find out what we’re up to. At the minute, you’ll find that we’ve updated our publications list and contact information. Currently, we’re in the process of refreshing our biographies, and will be featuring more stories about our faculty and graduate researchers.
Thanks for being patient with us. We’re looking forward to sharing much more with you very soon!
