Description:
The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Summer Undergraduate Fellowship Program is a 10 week summer program designed to provide opportunities for undergraduate university students to gain experience in medical physics by performing research in a medical physics laboratory or assisting with clinical service at a clinical facility. The mentor and Fellow will determine the exact 10 week schedule. In this program, AAPM serves as a clearinghouse to match exceptional students with exceptional medical physicists, many who are faculty at leading research centers. Students participating in the program are placed into summer positions that are consistent with their interest. Students are selected for the program on a competitive basis to be an AAPM summer fellow. Each summer fellow receives a $6,000 stipend from AAPM. The stipend is based upon an expectation of 40-hour per week effort for 10 weeks.

Applicants shall have declared a major or be eligible to declare a major in physics, engineering, or other science, which requires mathematics at least through differential equations, modern physics/quantum mechanics, electricity and magnetism or equivalent courses in engineering sciences.
