[[Expert partner for the use of medical equipment]] To run their medical equipment, hospitals, clinics and large practices require specialists fully trained in the basics of modern medicine and operation of high-tech medical devices. This opens up a highly interesting field of work for engineers or scientists that are also trained in medical physics. Their solid university education just needs to be supplemented with the necessary interdisciplinary specialist knowledge in medicine and physics here. This makes them the ideal partner to physicians using high-grade medical equipment. Alongside potential for working at medical facilities, further fields of application include research and development of medical equipment and procedures, testing, monitoring and maintenance, as well as sales, training, etc.
[[Objective]] The course conveys the necessary scientific knowledge in the field of medical physics, tailored to the individual, professional requirements of this career path and with key focuses in the areas of medical radiation physics, medical laser physics and medical image processing. The course concludes with the academic grade "Master of Science" (MSc).
[[Target group]] The three-year, accredited distance learning Master's degree is aimed at graduates of technical and science-based degrees with at least one year of professional experience in the field of medical physics, medical engineering or other closely related fields. This course is ideal for those already working or seeking to work in the areas of medical radiation physics, laser physics or image processing.
[[Program content]] The "Medical Physics" distance learning Master's degree encompasses a phase of basic and advanced study, as well as a graduation phase of two terms. Once the phase of basic study is completed, the distance learning degree focuses on more advanced materials in the fields of medical radiation physics, medical laser physics and medical image processing, whereby students each select one specialist field. In the subsequent graduation phase, students can work on the contents of one of the other two specialist fields. The Master's dissertation is then written to complete the graduation phase. The contents of the course include conveying basic medical knowledge and legal frameworks, as well as both the function and application of medical equipment and procedures. Among other things, the teaching catalogue is aligned with the training recommendations of the German Society for Medical Physics (DGMP e.V.). The distance learning master degree course "Medical Physics" has been certified since 2010 according to the current revision of the DGMP further education regulation to obtain professional recognition.
This course is held entirely in German.
University degree (university or university of applied sciences) in a technical-scientific oriented field and appropriate occupation/professional life (one year at least).
620,00 € per term + 90,00 € social contribution costs per term + 500,00 € one-off fee for the Master's examination
Recipient: Technischen Universität Kaiserslautern
