Medical dosimetry program wins accreditation
Medical dosimetry is the science of measuring and calculating the doses and format of radiation given to patients requiring radiation therapy.
"Accreditation makes us more competitive in recruiting high-caliber students," noted the program's education director, Alonso Gutiérrez, Ph.D., assistant professor of radiation oncology. The only other accredited program in Texas is at the U.T. M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
