We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Medical Physics equip postgraduates with the skills to apply theories and methodologies from Physics to a variety of medical disciplines, improving biological function and treating disorders.
Related subjects include Medical Engineering and Medical Imaging. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Medicine or Physics.
The application of Physics to the field of Medicine is essential in understanding, monitoring and improving a broad range of biological systems, disorders and diseases. Courses in this field are often very diverse, allowing postgraduates to specialise in a variety of areas.
For example, you may wish to study Medical Physics in a clinical context, gaining experience of the ways in which treatments such as radiation oncology are utilised in healthcare settings. This may include training in diagnostic and intervention radiology, as well as nuclear medicine.
Alternatively, you might explore more experimental routes, learning to develop and improve technology such as biosensors and other biological machines, and even branch into fields such as nanobiotechnology.
As noted above, careers include clinical and industrial roles, from diagnostic and preventative medicine, through to product design and development. Other careers include policy-making and administration.
