Discoveries in neuro-biological science have been increasingly led by two forces: neuroimaging and genomics. A modern neuroscience research teams combine expertise from seemingly diverse areas of science including physics, biology, physiology, genetics and statistics. A recent graduate from a medical physics program is expected to have a polymathic background that prepared him/her to seamlessly integrate within the neuroscience community contributing knowledge and expertise in physics and physiology of underlying imaging signal. I will discuss a curriculum of modern medical physics doctorate training program that prepares students for a research carrier in neuroscience. This program builds upon the robust knowledge of physics and mathematics that new coming students are bringing with them with training in imaging technology, neuroscience, statistics and experimental design. The graduates of this program are working in diverse area from clinical science to academic research.
