The course is also accredited by the ACPSEM, so I’m well on my way to completion of the training required to become a practicing medical physicist, an interesting, fulfilling and in demand career”.
Students will undertake a research project on an appropriate medical physics topic that will develop their independent research and analytical abilities and expose them to current diagnostic and therapeutic technologies used in the medical system.
A series of focused coursework units will provide students with relevant background knowledge in topics such as human biology, radiation protection, radiobiology, medical imaging and radiotherapy.
Students must nominate a specialisation on application, the Master of Physics has specialisations in; The Faculty of Science offers Master's by Coursework bursaries for domestic students and Postgraduate Merit scholarships for international students.
Please visit the Faculty of Science website for details.
Domestic students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place within this course.
”The UWA Master of Medical Physics course is an excellent postgraduate research and coursework program for those who want to apply their skills in physics to healthcare.
I found the medical physics research and teaching collaborations with industry professionals in both the public and private sectors fostered an excellent learning environment.
The available research projects were varied and interesting, with supervisors providing support and guidance at every stage.
Medical technology is a vital part of our health system.
