This Master of Applied Science (Health and Medical Physics) from RMIT University is assessed by both a research project and the completion of five courses.
The research project is in medical or health physics, and is examined by thesis.
The coursework is vocationally relevant to radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging, radiation protection and health physics, and is available in online mode.
You will complete Research Methods for Sciences in your first semester. Four other courses will be undertaken in subsequent semesters.
A masters degree will provide you with a foundation for further studies into a PhD and employment in senior leadership and management research-based positions in a variety of government, non-government and corporate organisations.
Graduates of this program are now employed by organisations including:
- Alfred Health Radiation Oncology
