Description: 

SPECIALISATIONS

Educational programme on the Medical Physics course is not divided into specislisations
 

MAIN SUBJECTS

Normal anatomy
Introduction to clinical medicine
Physiology
Biophysics
Medical equipment
Quality control in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine
Radiobiology
Dosimetry
Radiation protection
 

ADVANTAGES

There is professional practice provided during the course after the second year, i.e. 4 weeks in state and private healthcare centres, on the basis of contracts with potential employers. Receiving a pass grade in the main subjects on the course constitutes facilitation for obtaining the required licences in the area of radiation protection. A graduate in medical physics should possess extensive knowledge in the area of physics, based on sound understanding of mathematics, as well as laboratory skills in order to fulfill the obligations of medical physicists employed in healthcare centres (in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine departments). Laboratory classes take place in scientific-research rooms at the Faculty, equipped with the newest equipment purchased in 2012-2013, and are conducted by academic staff from the University of Gdańsk and Gdańsk Medical University.

EMPLOYMENT PERSPECTIVES

Graduates in Medical Physics course may undertake work, as medical physics experts, in healthcare centres, particularly in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine laboratories, having obtained specialisation in this area.
