  • The UWA Master of Physics (Medical Physics) and Master of Medical Physics programmes are both accredited with the Australasian Collage of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM), the Australia and New Zealand professional body for Medical Physicists.

  • The course is designed by academics who are actively involved in research. Therefore, students are confident that they learn the latest advances in cutting-edge Medical Physics research.

  • A key strength of the UWA programme is that most of the lectures are delivered by clinical medical physicists who are operating at the forefront of the profession with a balance of research and clinical practice. They can provide firsthand information about how medical physics problems are handled in the hospital environment, which is perfect for educational purposes.

  • Several practical sessions are held in the clinic, so that students get familiar with the clinical application of the concepts they learn during the lectures. Students are gradually immersed in clinical culture and environment at large teaching hospitals.

  • Due to the large size of the collaborating teaching hospitals, all mainstream areas of medical physics are covered along with some specialised fields.

  • Medical Physics Masters programs at UWA provide 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 in comprehensive literature review, practice and interpreting research. 

    • Collaborating hospitals provide the required facilities for research and the group supports the graduates to succeed in the upcoming career opportunities. The group places strong emphasis on developing the students’ applied skills and expertise, so that their experiences are closely aligned to the future employers’ needs.

  • Master of Medical Physics includes fewer research units and therefore the requirements and expectation for the final report is not at the same level as MPhys (Medical Physics). However, it contains more specialized coursework relevant to students' future career needs.

  • The group has an open-door policy which offers the students a friendly and supportive learning environment

  • The group has effective course monitoring and opportunities for student feedback which helps with quality management and improvement of the course every year.
