Overview

The Medical Physics program at the University of Sydney provides specialist postgraduate training in the application of radiation physics, dosimetry, imaging and radiobiology to cancer diagnosis and treatment, and to radiation detection and protection.

The Masters program is accredited by the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM), which is the body responsible for the Training and Education Accreditation Program (TEAP) for medical physics registrars.

The core coursework component of the Medical Physics program constitutes eight units of study. The Master of Medical Physics (MMedPhys) offers in addition a project unit in which students carry out an independent research project at a clinical medical physics department at one of our affiliated hospitals.
