Medical physicists are employed in the fields of radiotherapy, medical imaging, nuclear medicine and associated research and regulatory divisions of non-hospital institutions.
You’ll develop the skills to critically evaluate and optimise the performance of medical equipment and procedures and use your problem-solving abilities to analyse outputs, diagnose problems and provide quality assurance for patient treatments.
Using your initiative together with a high degree of independence, you’ll be instrumental in the evaluation and implementation of new technologies and in the translation of research into professional practice.
Medical physicists are important advisors to their team of professionals who often include oncologists, radiologists, therapists, technologists and biomedical engineers.
Qualified medical physicists are highly sought after due to an increasing ageing population and the expansion of radiation oncology and medical imaging facilities and services.
RMIT graduates in the areas of medical physics, radiation and health physics are employed in the fields of:
- medical imaging
- nuclear medicine
- radiation protection
- mining and prospecting
- government regulatory agencies
- associated research activities of non-hospital institutions.
This program is accredited by the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM) who oversee a professional accreditation program that recognises and certifies experienced medical physicists.
