About

The Medical Radiation Physics Unit at McGill University is a teaching and research unit focusing on the role that physics and its related sciences plays in medicine and cancer research, especially (but not exclusively) in radiation medicine; i.e., radiation oncology, medical imaging, and nuclear medicine.

Overview

Overview

The Unit offers a graduate diploma and an M.Sc. in Medical Radiation Physics. Facilities are available for students to undertake a Ph.D. in Physics administered through the Department of Physics, or a Ph.D. in Biological and Biomedical Engineering administered through the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering, each with a research emphasis on medical physics. These graduate programs are supervised, funded, and hosted by Medical Physics Unit PI's (principal investigators).

The research interests of Unit members include various topics related to the application of physics methods to medicine:

  • 3D and 4D imaging, the development of new imaging modalities, and applications of imaging in radiation therapy;
  • radiation physics and computational & experimental dosimetry;
  • AI and machine learning applications to medical imaging, radiation therapy, and health informatics;
  • applications of nano-sciences to medical imaging and therapy;
  • numerical modelling of fundamental interactions of radiation with living cells;
  • metabolic and functional imaging using radio-nuclides and MRI;
  • applications of radiation biology to therapy and radiation protection.

Graduate Medical Radiation Physics students at McGill University are part of the Medical Physics Research Training Network (MPRTN) supported by the Collaborative Research Education Training Experience (CREATE) of the Natural Sciences & Engineering Research Council (NSERC).

The M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in Medical Physics are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc., sponsored by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), the American College of Radiology (ACR), the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists (COMP), and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
