Upon successful completion of the core coursework units, you will:
- have a sound knowledge of fundamental radiation and nuclear physics
- be able to correctly identify anatomical features in a clinical CT scan
- understand the difference between diagnostic and functional imaging
- be able to measure radiation dose with difference detectors
- know how to characterize radiation beams from clinical linear accelerators
- have a thorough knowledge of modern radiotherapy treatment techniques
- be able to develop computational models for imaging and dosimetry
- have a sound knowledge of radiation protection and radiobiology
- have an appreciation of advanced clinical techniques in medical physics, such as image-guided radiotherapy, multi-modal imaging and hadron therapy.
Graduates of the Master of Medical Physics course will, in addition, have gained sufficient experience in research methodology and techniques to enable them to initiate independent, self-directed research leading to peer-reviewed publications in the scientific literature.
