The UWA Master of Physics (Medical Physics) program is accredited by the Australasian Collage of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM).
This program is 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) in Australia and New Zealand, 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.
