Course content

Can the application of physics concepts, theories and methods save lives?

On Surrey’s internationally renowned Medical Physics MSc, you’ll explore this question, discovering the latest techniques which are extending the limits of medicine.

We are accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), and we’ve trained more than 1,000 medical physicists, so you can look forward to high-quality teaching during your time at Surrey.

What you will study

The syllabus for our MSc in Medical Physics will provide you with the knowledge, skills and experience required of a modern graduate medical physicist.

Our course places more emphasis than many other similar programmes on topics beyond ionising radiation (X-rays and radiotherapy), allowing you to study areas such as magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and the use of lasers in medicine.

You’ll learn the theoretical foundations of modern imaging and treatments, and you’ll gain a set of experimental skills that are essential to a modern medical physicist’s job. You’ll gain these skills through experimental sessions in our Department of Physics, as well as through practical experiences using advanced clinical facilities at collaborating hospitals.
