Medical Physics

General information

The aim of the programme Medical Physics is to provide students with a profound understanding of physical, chemical and biological laws. Such understanding is impossible without a sound knowledge of the necessary mathematical tools as well as modern information technology. The students follow courses covering the basics of physics, chemistry, biology and the medical disciplines. Throughout the programme, theoretical courses are balanced with practical laboratory courses. The physical principles behind the diagnostic and therapeutic methods and their application in modern medicine are presented as well. Moreover, the students have the possibility to learn modern instrumental techniques (microscopy, ultrasonography, x-ray tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, lithotripsy, working with sources of ionising radiation, etc.).

A successful graduate is able to

  • explain principles of biophysical methods used in medicine with an emphasis on diagnostic and therapeutic devices
  • describe and analyse biophysical risks of diagnostic and therapeutic methods
  • act as a mediator in professional discussions between doctors, engineers and physicists
  • continue to study related branches, like biophysics or radiological physics at the Master's degree level

Graduate employment

Thanks to the basic physical and mathematical knowledge offered, the graduates of this programme can either continue their studies or find a job; the latter includes basic and applied research performed in academic institutions, in laboratories, companies, metrological institutions, institutions using tools of (bio)informatics and (bio)statistics, and others. This specialization also offers the graduates the opportunity to work in health care, mainly in specialized diagnostic and therapeutic departments which use medical instrumentation. Particularly, the graduates can find jobs where qualified use of modern diagnostic instruments and data processing in medicine (e.g. radiology) is needed.
