Course content

The MSc Medical Physics (Euromasters) is a two year alternative to traditional Masters programmes and combines advanced taught technical content with modules in research skills and public engagement and an extended dissertation project.

The syllabus for the MSc in Medical Physics (Euromasters) is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and experience required for a modern graduate medical physicist, placing more emphasis than many other courses on topics beyond ionising radiation (X-rays and radiotherapy).

Examples of other topics include magnetic resonance imaging and the use of lasers in medicine.

You will learn the theoretical foundations underpinning modern imaging and treatment modalities, and will gain a set of experimental skills essential in a modern medical physicist’s job.

These skills are gained through experimental sessions in the physics department and practical experiences at collaborating hospitals using state-of-the-art clinical facilities.
