Medical physics

Medical PhysicsTwo programmes of study are offered jointly by the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Medical Physics Group, Department of Cardiovascular Science.

The Physics with Medical Physics courses lead either to a BSc degree (3 years, code PHYU05), or to a MPhys (4 years, code PHYU10). The administration of both courses is handled by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and so this guide should be read in conjunction with the Department’s "Guide for Undergraduate Students"

The following taught modules are offered in addition to projects (MPY321/322, MPY401) and hospital/industrial placements (MPY424):

  • MPY101 Physics of Living Systems
  • MPY205 Aspects of Medical Imaging and Technology
  • MPY308 Clinical Engineering and Computational Mechanics
