Here Is What Our Graduates Think

UWA graduates have been among the most successful applicants for competitive positions across the country.

“UWA is an especially beautiful campus, the scenery and peacocks make for a nice back drop to your studies.
The Medical Physics research group is a very warm and welcoming community. There are engaging weekly research meetings with supervisors, fellow students and sometimes visiting academics. The discussions at these meetings provide a rich opportunity to develop communication and scientific problem-solving skills.
My favourite aspect of the UWA medical physics program was the practical element. I had lectures as well as the opportunity to attend observer placements in several different hospitals and clinics around Perth, often seeing the machines we had just learned about in theory. Attending these practical sessions were invaluable learning experiences, the most memorable of which entailed shadowing medical physicists as they work, and this really helped shape my career.”

 - Joshua Hiatt - 

radiation oncology medical physics (ROMP) registrar at Liverpool Hospital in Sydney, NSW.

“The Medical Physics research group at UWA provides experienced supervision whilst giving you the freedom to approach your research in a way you think will produce the best results. I enjoyed most the interesting discussions with medical physics researchers/students on a variety of topics as it kept my mind fresh.”

 - Dr. Calyn Moulton- 

radiation oncology medical physics (ROMP) registrar at Westmead Hospital in Sydney, NSW.

"What I enjoyed most at UWA was taking my research skills to the next level. This aspect of the Master’s program is where you challenge every element of your skill profile and get the opportunity to creatively engage in comprehensive problem solving Being involved in a research team not only develops the analytical side but also makes you a better person: Getting to be around like-minded people with different perspectives and skill sets is an invaluable way to grow as a physicist."

- Corban Neeley -

diagnostic imaging medical physics (DIMP) registrar at Canberra Hospital

“There was plenty to enjoy about studying at UWA and being part of the Medical Physics Research Group. The best part was the team atmosphere that is fostered by Pejman and Martin, and the sense of collaboration and community that exists in the Medical Physics Research Group.”

 - Alex Burton - 

 radiation oncology medical physics registrar at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne

"UWA is a great place to study and welcomed me well. Particularly, I really enjoyed being part of the Medical Physics research group. Pejman and Martin are doing an amazing job in running the group. They provide excellent supervision and take their time for every individual student. I also really appreciated that all projects were performed at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital or Genesis Cancer Care which provides us a great opportunity to apply our theoretical knowledge from the course (mostly taught by medical physicists working in the field) to practical situations and we can see how everything works in “real life”. Moreover, we had the chance to observe monthly QA sessions on linacs and CT scanners and obtain work experience with medical physicists which was extremely valuable."

 - Mario Djukelic - 

medical physicist at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, WA.

"First of all, UWA was probably designed to embody the spirit of Perth; outdoorsy and laid-back. The Matilda Bay and Kings Park are just a short stroll from UWA. These make a good study environment. Second, I enjoyed the access to interesting talks in arts and social sciences, cultural events and music that students have access to.
Most importantly, UWA has well-connected academics which enable collaborative efforts with scientists across the globe. This is vital for research students like myself."

 - Dr. Azrul Yahya - 

academic staff at The National University of Malaysia (UKM)

“It really is an excellent program and highly relevant. There is not one thing I learned that is not useful knowledge in the field today. This in combination with the practical sessions gives a very solid base that makes me feel comfortable with what I know today.”

 - Theresa Feddersen - 

Division of Human Health, Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications, at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Vienna, Austria

"Having an interest in both physics and neuroscience I was naturally drawn to the Medical Physical research group as it allowed me to combine these interests in a way not offered by any other group. While there I assessed the performance of a new radiotherapy device in terms of its performance in brain cancer treatment. The support I received from my supervisor and other senior researchers in completing my project was exceptional and the coursework was enjoyable and applicable to my research project."

 - Ryan Begley - 

Nuclear Medicine Physicist Theranostics Australia 

Perth, WA.

"The highlight of my time at UWA and the Medical Physics research group were the wonderful people and communities. The different clubs at the university, most notably the Postgraduate Student Association (PSA), helped me connect with different likeminded individuals as well as providing opportunities to present my work to my peers."

 - Jeremy Hughes - 

 radiation oncology medical physics registrar at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne

"The industry relationships with Genesis Cancer Care (where I now work) and SCGH. I had access to their resources and to real medical physicists, oncologists, radiologists and so on. During my Masters I did a project with Genesis. One of my two supervisors was the chief physicist here. And now I’m working with that company."
