Desc:The graduate student will pursue independent laboratory or industrial research during the academic year. Many WUSM faculty have research opportunities for students. Students should reach an agreement with a faculty member who is willing to serve as supervisor for the objective and scope of the project. The faculty supervisor must be either employed full time in the Department of Radiation Oncology or affiliated with its Medical Physics Division. The grade for the Independent Study will be Pass/Fail. The student may continue to develop his/ her research to a second term and expand the research into either a Clinical Project or Thesis Research. Instructor : Mike Altman Ph.D. Fall and Spring


A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
