Graduate Program

Graduate Courses

The Medical Physics Unit is a teaching and research unit concerned with the application of physics and related sciences in medicine, especially (but not exclusively) in radiation medicine, i.e., radiation oncology, medical imaging and nuclear medicine. The Unit offers an M.Sc. in Medical Radiation Physics and facilities are available for students to undertake a Ph.D. in Medical Physics through the Department of Physics.

The research interests of members of the Unit include various aspects of medical imaging, including:

  • 3D imaging, the development of new imaging modalities, and applications of imaging in radiation therapy;
  • radiation dosimetry and solid state;
  • nuclear cardiology;
  • applications of radiation biology to therapy.

The M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in Medical Physics are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc., sponsored by The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), The American College of Medical Physics (ACMP), The American College of Radiology (ACR), and the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine (CCPM).

For more information, please refer to the Faculty of Medicine's Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies section.
