Undergraduate Research

Physics undergraduate student working hands-on in the lab.

Medical Physics at Ryerson University is an applied, hands-on program within a rich research environment. Even as an undergraduate, you’ll experience science as it’s authentically practiced in the lab — either with faculty members or nearby Toronto research hospitals. Some opportunities are even paid, with experience you can add to your resume even before you graduate.

Training in authentic scientific research

Research Practicum: Optional, non-credit course to gain early experience in how research works.

4th Year Thesis: A required, year-long research project, working 1:1 with faculty or hospital researchers.  

Summer Research Assistantship: Paid, summer roles to work inside faculty research labs. Check out our research areas.

Volunteer Research: Real-time training, helping individual professors with their research work. Meet our researchers.

Co-op: Optional program that integrates paid work terms into your academic studies. Find out how co-op works.

Global Exchange: Experience science and culture in a foreign country. Course and research-based exchange programs available.

"In my final year, I did a research project at St. Michael’s Hospital through funding from the NSERC-USRA award, and was grateful to have an all-expenses-paid trip to present it at the Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) in Edmonton, Alberta."
