USING PHYSICS CONCEPTS in the field of medicine, the program will teach students the methodologies to medical imaging, radiation therapy, radiation protection and dosimetry. Our program offers work placement opportunities , state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, and practical training that will prepare students for real-life work experiences.

First-year students focus on building their common science foundations with Biology, Chemistry, Contemporary Science and Medical Physics. In their upper years, undergrads will spend more time in the laboratory with our state-of-the-art technology and facilities. Subjects to be tackled include anything and everything concerning health physics and radiation protection, medical diagnostics, and computer modelling techniques.

With a combination of internships and practical lab applications, our graduates are well-prepared to plunge into the workforce of healthcare and industry related fields. Many pursue such roles as medical research, radiation exposure testing, cancer diagnosis and management services, and research. Others choose to continue their studies in other medical fields, such as dentistry, pharmacy, business, law or education.
