The Master of Medical Physics is designed for physical scientists seeking specialist knowledge and skills in the field of medical physics.
Medical Physicists are employed clinically in the fields of radiotherapy, medical imaging, nuclear medicine, and in the associated research and regulatory activities in non-hospital institutions.
You'll develop the skills to evaluate the performance of medical equipment, analyse outputs, and diagnose problems. With initiative and a high degree of independence, you will be instrumental in the evaluation and implementation of new technologies and translation of research into professional practice.
You will become an important advisor to a team of professionals including oncologists, radiologists, therapists, technologists and biomedical engineers.
You will study courses that provide a basic understanding of human biology and advanced physics, such as human structure and function, radiobiology, optics, radiation, electromagnetics, quantum physics, photonics and nuclear physics.
You'll also study the technical aspects of medical physics in courses concerning medical imaging, radiotherapy, and radiation transport modelling.
You must have successfully completed an Australian Bachelor degree (or equivalent overseas qualification) in a physical science, biomedical engineering disciplines having substantial physics and mathematics components, with a minimum average of 60%/Credit or a GPA of at least 2.0 (out of 4.0).
