The Medical Physics and Bioengineering MRes provides structured training in this diverse and multidisciplinary field and students may subsequently progress to an MPhil/PhD as part of a Doctoral Training Programme.
The programme covers all forms of ionising and non-ionising radiation commonly used in medicine and applies it to the areas of imaging and treatment. The programme involves Master's level modules chosen from a wide range offered by the department and a research project. Good performance in the MRes will lead to entry into the 2nd year of the Doctoral Training Programme where the research project is continued.
Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of four optional modules and a research project. There are no core modules for this programme.
Optional modules - students choose four optional modules from the following: -Ionising Radiation Physics: Interactions and Dosimetry -Medical Imaging -Clinical Practice -Treatment with Ionising Radiation -Medical Electronics and Control -Bioengineering -Optics in Medicine -Computing in Medicine -Medical Devices and Applications -Foundations and Anatomy and Scientific Computing -Image Processing -Computational Modelling in Biomedical Imaging -Programming Foundations for Medical Image Analysis -Information Processing in Medical Imaging -Image-Directed Analysis and Therapy
Dissertation/report All students undertake a research project.
Our graduates typically find work in academia, the NHS, and in industry.
Why study this degree at UCL?
The department is one of the largest medical physics and bioengineering departments in Europe, with links to a large number of active teaching hospitals. We have arguably the widest range of research of any similar department, and work closely with other world-leading institutions.
Students on the programme will form part of an interactive network of researchers across many disciplines and will benefit from the strengths of UCL in the healthcare field.
