I am interested in studying and researching in the field of particle therapy, but I really can't find a lot of information on how to get into this area, which institutions have such programs, etc...
I've looked into medical physics as a possibility, but it seems to be the wrong field for those interested in research. Do people get into particle therapy with a background in accelerator physics, biophysics, radiation oncology?...
I found this nice little list of institutions with accelerators to study hadron therapy: http://www.iss.infn.it/webg3/toptera/hadthe.html
(almost every link is broken, but the list seems accurate)
Any institutions I've found doing research in this field don't really have helpful information on prospective students.
Anyone have ideas, insights, advice, recommendations?
