Image Guided Radiotherapy

Multi-centre/international comparisons

Clinical trials outcomes

At UWA, Medical Physics research is strongly aligned with improving treatment and diagnostic precision using localized and minimally invasive techniques that are aimed to improve patient outcomes.

Studying Medical Physics at UWA provides an exceptional opportunity to learn in a department with strong commitment to research. The research component of this programme allows students to develop valuable skills for practising and interpreting research.

Research opportunities are available for students. To submit an expression of interest for a research opportunity, fill out our form
