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 MMedPhys degree 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.
