Qualification: Master's degree in medical physics (no legal status)

Master's degree in medical physics (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

  • demonstrate coherent mastery of basic knowledge in the field of medical physics,
  • integrate this knowledge with other broad fields important for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, such as anatomy, physiology, radiobiology, etc.,
  • address specific work-related problems such as planning radiotherapy, calibration of measuring instruments, quality assurance with regard to the functioning of medical devices,
  • demonstrate understanding of the general structure of medical physics and connections with its subdisciplines, in particular radiotherapy physics, diagnostic radiology physics, nuclear medicine physics and healthcare physics,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the information and communication technologies and systems used in medical diagnostics and treatment.

Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
