Medical Physics (BSc (Hons))

Where You Belong

“The professors were extremely, extremely unique. Every single one of them insisted ‘You can talk to me on a regular basis – I’m approachable, I care about you.’ Our classroom sizes were small enough to actually talk to the professor. I think all of my professors knew my name, and I’d wave to them all in the hallways when I walked through.”

Is It for You?

Medical Physics explores the ways in which physics is applied in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses. You’ll learn to apply physics-based concepts and methodologies to procedures such as medical imaging, radiation therapy, radiation protection and dosimetry. You will complete a thesis project and can pursue an optional paid co-op, benefitting from Ryerson’s close academic connection to hospitals. You’ll graduate with the knowledge, experience and problem-solving capabilities to provide solutions in areas related to health care.

This is one of three bachelor of science programs that share a one-year foundation.
