The UWA Masters programs in Medical Physics are accredited by the Australasian Collage of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM).

These programs are intended to provide the applicants with physics and engineering background the relevant knowledge and problem-solving skills suitable for entry into the ACPSEM Training, Education and Accreditation Program (TEAP) in radiation oncology, diagnostic radiology or nuclear medicine.

The Medical Physics programe at UWA covers the full range of applications of physics and engineering to healthcare, including diagnostic imaging, radiotherapy and radiation protection. The curriculum is based on the requirements of the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM), and the programme is accredited by this organization. The syllabus for the MPhys (Medical Physics) is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and experience required for a modern graduate medical physicist.

Students will learn the theoretical foundations underpinning modern imaging and treatment modalities, and will gain a set of experimental skills essential for a modern medical physicist. These skills are gained through practical sessions with clinical medical physicists in collaborating hospitals using state-of-the-art clinical facilities.

The UWA Medical Physics Group also offers the Master of Medical Physics course, which is designed mainly for international applicants. This program has the same core units but is less research intensive. However, it contains more specialized coursework units relevant to students' future career needs.

For more information about the two masters programmes, follow the links below:

Details of the units in both masters programs are listed below:

Master of Medical Physics (students should take all core units, research units, up to 4 conversion units, and up to 7 optional unit)








Master of Physics (Medical Physics)  (students should take all core units, research units, up to 4 conversion units, and up to 4 optional unit)
