Learning Outcomes

Highly specialised knowledge in the field of Medical Physics which is expertise in the recognition and correction of less than optimal performance or clinical use of medical devices and the implementation and management of programmes for protection of patients/staff/public/research volunteers from physical agents associated with medical devices (e.g., ionising radiation, strong magnetic fields, lasers). 

All Medical Physics activities are based on current best evidence or own scientific research when the available evidence is not sufficient. Medical Physicists need to have a critical awareness of knowledge issues in the field and at the interface between physics and medicine.

Skills you gain in the Medical Physics programme from University of Malta :

  • Cognitive skills: specialised skills involved in problem solving, research, reflection, judgement, handling of complexity, communication and innovation.
  • Practical skills: involving manual dexterity in the use of methods, materials, tools and measuring instruments for medical physics applications.
  • Transferable skills: advanced analytical, synthetic, problem solving, mathematical, computing, management, communication, leadership, project management, creative and entrepreneurial skills.
