Course Summary

This taught Masters is designed to provide you with an advanced programme of study in Medical Physics. It provides an understanding of the application of physics and technology to a range of disciplines within medical physics at a level appropriate for a professional physicist. We have expertise in traditional areas like ionising radiation, but also specialist sections in PET Scanning, ophthalmology, urology, informatics and leading researchers in MRI. A key strength of this programme is that you will be taught mostly by physicists working in the NHS. It will quip you for employment in a clinical environment. The programme is accredited with the Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), the UK professional body for medical physicists. Due to the large size of the NHS medical physics department in Glasgow, all mainstream areas of medical physics are covered along with some specialised fields.
