About

Medical physicists are health care professionals with specialized training in the medical applications of physics. The Medical Physics program from University of British Columbia benefits from research strengths within the Vancouver area medical physics community, e.g. radiation therapy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine imaging

Overview

Graduates of the M.Sc. in Medical Physics program from University of British Columbia will:

  • understand the physics of medical imaging and radiation oncology;
  • be able to apply medical physics theory to frontier research;
  • work effectively in clinical and research environments that include oncologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, cardiologists, neuroscientists, radiation therapy professionals and biomedical engineers;
  • be highly competitive in the Canadian and international medical physics labour markets.

What makes the program unique?

Research conducted within the program can directly contribute to provincial heath care initiatives through engagement of associate and adjunct faculty based in local health care institutions.

Both the MSc and PhD medical physicist are eligible to sit the Canadian College of Physicist in Medicine exam which awards the credential for clinical practice.
