Medical physicists combine knowledge of physics with experience and an understanding of the human body and health to help treat patients, particularly in niches such as radiology. Medical physicist job openings can be hard to fill because these positions require such a specific skill, education and knowledge set — which is good news for anyone who has those things. Qualified healthcare professionals can command competitive salaries, and if you're willing to look into travel physicist job opportunities, that's even truer.

What is the Salary of a Medical Physicist?
These jobs are extremely niche and require a lot of specialization, so it's no surprise the average medical physicist's job salary is very competitive.
