Course Description

Medical Physics is a rapidly expanding discipline which involves the application of physics-based principles and techniques to matters of medical diagnosis and treatment. The subject initially focused on the use of ionising radiations in both diagnostic and therapeutic applications, but nowadays Medical Physics has expanded to embrace a very wide spectrum of physics, including ultrasonics, lasers and optics, magnetism and electronics, with applications in a wide range of medical and surgical procedures.
The School offers a 3 year Honours Degree programmes in Applied Physics with Medical Physics; also a 1 year  or 2 years full-time M.Sc. programme in Medical Physics. The M.Sc. degree is designed to provide advanced training in the applications of physics and the use of high technology equipment in the medical field.
