Medical Physics MSc

Study Details

MSc 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

Why choose this course

Can the application of physics concepts, theories and methods save lives?

Our MSc in Medical Physics is internationally renowned. We are accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

We have trained more than 1,000 medical physicists, so you can look forward to pioneering teaching during your time at Surrey.

What you will study

The syllabus for our MSc in Medical Physics will provide you with the knowledge, skills and experience required for a modern graduate medical physicist.

It places more emphasis than many other similar courses on topics beyond ionising radiation (X-rays and radiotherapy) to include, amongst other topics, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and the use of lasers in medicine.

You will learn the theoretical foundations of modern imaging and treatments, and you will gain a set of experimental skills essential in a modern medical physicist’s job. These skills are gained through experimental sessions in our Department of Physics and through practical experiences at collaborating hospitals using advanced clinical facilities.
