Course summary

The application of physics to the treatment and diagnosis of medical conditions is a rapidly expanding and exciting field of study, vitally important to the detection and treatment of many medical conditions and diseases.This BSc Physics with Medical Physics has been developed in conjunction with the University Hospital of Wales. Specialised modules are given by professional medical physicists from Cardiff University’s School of Medicine.The course is designed to give you a thorough grounding in physics and a broad introduction to the many specialist areas of medical physics. In the final year you will carry out a research project at the University Hospital of Wales where particular fields of interest are Doppler ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, electrical impedance tomography, radiation physics and body composition measurements.You will be part of a friendly and welcoming department currently housed in the Queen’s Building complex, which contains a wide variety of purpose-built laboratories, lecture theatres and computing facilities.Accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP), this course aims to give you a sound training in physics and medical physics in preparation for a wide variety of employment, including industrial or academic research and development, medical physics, education and or other sectors which require a practical, numerate and analytical approach to problem solving, such as business, finance and government.Distinctive featuresThe distinctive features of the course include:•The BSc Physics with Medical Physics course replaces about 20% of the conventional material found in a BSc Physics programme with specialised medical physics options covering areas such as medical imaging and the design and use of various diagnostic techniques•The medical physics elements of this programme are delivered by practising medical physicists, some from other Cardiff University Schools and some from the local NHS Trust•The opportunity to learn in a department which has a strong commitment to research•The involvement of research-active staff in course design and delivery•Frequent opportunities to conduct practical work in the School’s laboratory facilities•An emphasis on independent learning•Effective course monitoring and opportunities for student feedbackThe course contains all the core content required for the degree to be accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP).
