This taught Masters is designed to provide you with an advanced programme of study in Medical Physics. It provides an understanding of the application of physics and technology to a range of disciplines within medical physics at a level appropriate for a professional physicist. We have expertise in traditional areas like ionising radiation, but also specialist sections in PET Scanning, Ophthalmology, Urology, Informatics and leading researchers in MRI.
Why this programme
◾A key strength of this programme is that you will be taught mostly by physicists working in the NHS. It will quip you for employment in a clinical environment. ◾Due to the large size of the NHS medical physics department in Glasgow, all mainstream areas of medical physics are covered along with some specialised fields. ◾The programme is accredited with the Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), the UK professional body for medical physicists. ◾The department has access to 1.5, 3 and 7 Tesla MRI, Pet Scanning, a cyclotron, dedicated SPECT and has its own radiosotope dispensary. ◾Your lecturers are operating at the forefront of the profession with a balance of research and clinical practice, perfect for studying Medical Science. ◾The research component of this programme allows you to develop valuable skills for practising and interpreting research. ◾We draw on expert resources within the wider university for anatomy, statistics and the two optional courses.
You will attend lectures, seminars and tutorials, take part in e-learning and undertake a research project.
Core courses ◾Radiation physics ◾Anatomy and physiology ◾Statistics and experimental techniques ◾Medical imaging physics ◾Programming ◾Scientific management ◾Clinical medical imaging ◾Radiotherapy ◾Clinical measurement ◾Research dissertation.
