Medical Physics (Euromasters)

The syllabus is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and experience required for a modern graduate medical physicist, placing more emphasis than many other courses on topics beyond ionising radiation (X-rays and radiotherapy). Examples of other topics include magnetic resonance imaging and the use of lasers in medicine. You will learn the theoretical foundations underpinning modern imaging and treatment modalities, and will gain a set of experimental skills essential in a modern medical physicist's job. These skills are gained through experimental sessions in the physics department and practical experiences at collaborating hospitals using state-of-the-art clinical facilities.

Entry requirements

A 2.2 honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in the physical sciences, electronics or in a relevant engineering discipline. English langauge requirements: IELTS 6.5 overall, 6.0 in each component (or equivalent)

Course modules

Example module listing: Radiation physics; radiation measurement C; experimental and professional skills for medical physics; introduction to biology and radiation biology; therapy physics; diagnostic applications of ionising radiation physics; non-ionising radiation imaging; extended group project; research skills (Euromasters); outreach and public engagement; Euromaster dissertation project.

Assessment methods

Assessment includes a dissertation.
