Program Description

The BSc in Medical Physics shares a common first year with the BSc programs in Biology, Chemistry, Contemporary Science, and Mathematics & Its Applications. Medical physics is a rapidly growing branch of applied physics, and concerns the application of physics-based concepts and methodologies to medicine such as diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy. The Medical Physics program is built on foundation studies in physics and mathematics, the core elements of a traditional physics degree. Students can also pursue an option in Management Science.

Medical Physics includes some of the following topics of study:

  • Biology; General Chemistry; Physics
  • Computer programming; Thermodynamics; Research
  • Nuclear Physics and Radiation
  • Medical Imaging and Analysis
