About the Course

Develop specialist knowledge in quantitative measurement and the evaluation of safe radiation exposure for patients and staff. Medical physicists are employed in the fields of radiotherapy, medical imaging, nuclear medicine and associated research and regulatory divisions of non-hospital institutions. You’ll develop the skills to critically evaluate and optimise the performance of medical equipment and procedures and use your problem-solving abilities to analyse outputs, diagnose problems and provide quality assurance for patient treatments. Using your initiative together with a high degree of independence, you’ll be instrumental in the evaluation and implementation of new technologies and in the translation of research into professional practice. Medical physicists are important advisors to their team of professionals who often include oncologists, radiologists, therapists, technologists and biomedical engineers.
