Course content

If you are a student of engineering or physical sciences, our MSc Medical Radiation Physics degree, will give you the necessary theoretical knowledge and understanding of fundamental aspects of the use of radiation in medicine, to enhance your career prospects.

You’ll get clinical practice through hands-on instruction with equipment used routinely in the hospital setting, including state-of-the-art MRI and CT facilities, and medical linear accelerators, which will prepare you for research or clinical training in this rapidly changing field. You’ll also get tuition in computer-based modelling, research methodology and the ethical dimensions associated with medical research.

This degree is ideal preparation for Postgraduate research in medical physics technology and is also a pathway towards state registration as a clinical scientist.

Your course is accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). IPEM is the professional body that works with physical science, engineering and clinical professionals in academia, healthcare services and industry in the UK, and supports clinical scientists and technologists in their practice through the provision and assessment of education and training.
