Medical Physics at UWA

The Medical Physics Research Group at UWA has achieved excellence in the training of medical physicists and scientists in the broad field of radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging. Many of our graduates are now in medical physics roles either here in Perth or at institutions across the world. The group offers MSc and PhD degrees in Medical Physics.

Medical Physics is one of the specialization in UWA Physics Department which provides a professional pathway to help you to pursue your dream career.

As an integral component of Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and the Department of Physics at UWA, the medical physics group proudly undertakes the educational missions of both institutions.

UWA offers two Masters programs:

   1- Master of Physics (Medical Physics), and

  2- Masters of Medical Physics

Click here to find out about the differences between the two programs. 

Both programs are accredited by the ACPSEM. The Departments of Radiation Oncology, Med Tech and Physics, and Nuclear Medicine at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Genesis Cancer Care, and Icon Cancer Centre in Perth provide educational support through lectures, practical sessions, and research supervision for postgraduate students of Medical Physics. Our ACPSEM-accredited Programs are designed to prepare students for entry into professional clinical training in the field of Medical Physics (TEAP) or join the industry.

The Master of Physics (Medical Physics) at UWA is a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) program. It has also been approved by the Australian Government as eligible for student income support (meaning students can apply for Austudy/ABSTUDY to support themselves financially while studying). 

Medical Physics is on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) for migration to Australia.

Our students are led to follow their specific interests, talents and aspirations by having a choice from a diverse list of proposed research topics. Qualities such as hard work, friendship, respect, and collegiality always take precedence in our group, and we aim to provide the best environment for our students to help them achieve their academic and personal goals.

Ultimately, we measure our academic success by the individual success of our students.  You can find success stories of our graduates in the Alumni page and in our weblog.

So what are you waiting for? Join us to explore the wonderful world of Medical Physics together!
