Physics of Medicine Program Prepares, Inspires Future Doctor

Sean Lenihan was in elementary school when Rockhurst University Professor Nancy Donaldson started the Physics of Medicine degree at Rockhurst.

It was 2008 and Donaldson wanted to broaden students’ understanding of physics with curriculum relevant to their interest in medicine and healthcare. She started the program with the specific intention to make physics accessible, applicable and relatable to students outside of a physics Ph.D. pathway.
