About the program

 

Medical Physics is a branch of applied physics, which focuses on the application of

physics concepts and methods in the medicine and health care profession. It explores the ways in which physics concepts are applied in the diagnosis and treatment of human disease using different types of radiation and physics concepts. It combines Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering, focusing on the application of medical radiation physics. Students admitted to the program will learn how to apply physics-based concepts and methodologies to procedures such as medical imaging (a medical diagnosis), radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, radiation protection, and dosimetry. Medical Physics provides important information for physicians in diagnostic radiology and radiation oncology. It also includes several medical physics professional activities such as the calibration and testing of equipment, assistance in the clinical procedures, calculation of radiation doses to the patient, and supervision of technical programs to ensure the quality of equipment.
