In this program, students learn from faculty certified in health physics and through experiences in the field including a week-long practicum at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and visits to local uranium mines and mills. Students also have opportunities to study in Fukushima, Japan, in partnership with Fukushima University, and access a TRIGA reactor as well as a dedicated MNCP computer cluster for research.
The Health Physics Program is located at Colorado State University (CSU). The Mountain & Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC) financially supports qualified students in the program. The MAP ERC is one of 18 National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) Education and Research Centers in the country. Students supported by the center collaborate with trainees in industrial hygiene, occupational and environmental medicine, occupational health psychology, and ergonomics programs on interdisciplinary research, scholarly projects, and in-depth field assessments at local industry sites.
Radiation Protection and Measurements at CSUHealth Physics is a part of the Radiation Protection and Measurements Section at Colorado State University. The protection of humans, animals, and the environment while allowing the beneficial use of radiation is the overarching goal of the Radiation Protection and Measurements Section. The Radiation Protection and Measurements section is broadly divided into three specialties: Health Physics, Radiochemistry, and Radioecology.
