The master’s programme in Medical Radiation Physics at Stockholm University combines your interest in physics with applications in medicine. You will study how radiation is used within health care to diagnose and treat diseases, and you will undergo practical training at the hospital.


A medical physicist is an expert in diagnostic methods and radiation therapy. Modern healthcare is experiencing rapid technological advances, and there is a need for both a detailed knowledge of basic biological effects and in advanced physical models. 

As a medical physicist, you can also work in radiation protection or in research and development. With a Master’s degree in Medical Radiation Physics from Stockholm University, you are also well prepared for further research studies in Sweden or abroad. 

Career opportunities

  • Today, half of all the cancer patients in the world are treated with radiotherapy, and diagnostic methods based on both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation represent a major cornerstone of modern medicine. 
  • There is an increased need of medical physicists with knowledge within physics, medicine and technology. 
  • To work as a medical physicist at a Swedish hospital, a license from the National Board of Health and Welfare is required. You can apply for the license after completing the programme.
