I had never thought of being a medical physicist until being admitted into Duke Kunshan University. Here, we are given an opportunity to build a rapport with professors and coordinators through the form of teaching in small classes. It is really a great opportunity to be able to communicate with the chief physicists and physicians from China and abroad.

I think Duke Kunshan University is the best Medical Physics program in the East generating world class education with western and eastern style of educational training. I have met countless great teachers in both Duke Kunshan and Duke, I can never forget my advisor’s words: “Fail and Learn”. In Durham, Dr. Yin gave me the confidence I was once unsure if I have. He makes me do everything first on my own. After doing a lot of thumbs up and thumbs down, he will then start telling me what went wrong. That is the time I realize: I will always remember things I did wrong. This helps me improve as a researcher and as a person. I shouldn’t rely too much on others and first try having confidence on myself.
