Suphatra Gilbert

Suphatra Gilbert has 7 years of clinical experience in radiographic and fluoroscopy equipment, ultrasound, dental, mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, CT, MRI, SPECT, PET, and Planar Camera. She is knowledgeable in clinical applications, quality assurance, acceptance surveys, regulations, radiation safety, accreditations, and shielding designs.

She discovered her interest in Medical Physics after she graduated from the Physics PhD Program at Syracuse University. She shadowed members of Upstate Medical Physics on several field assignments and voluntarily assisted in several projects at UMP. During that time, she not only had an opportunity to learn what Diagnostic Medical Physics is but also got to know UMP staff. She then went on to gain her academic requirements and clinical experience in Medical Physics at University at Buffalo and came back to join the UMP residency program in 2014. After completing her residency in 2016, she became a full-time UMP staff.  In 2019, she served the residency program as a resident committee. She recently got promoted to Associate Director of the residency program in 2021. She is committed to the development of UMP residents in all aspects of Diagnostic Medical Physics.

Suphatra is originally from Thailand and now lives in Syracuse, New York. Her personal interests include ballroom dancing, cooking, cake decorating, sewing and traveling.
