Want to use your passion for physics to make an impact on the health and medical industry?

Medical physics is an evolving science. It’s about harnessing the health benefits of radiation exposure and managing any risks involved.

Due to the expansion of radiation oncology and medical imaging, there’s a global shortage of trained professionals in the area. Demand for medical physics graduates in the health sector is high.

What will you do?

Our Graduate Certificate in Medical Physics focuses on the latest advances in the field. You’ll learn from leading academics and research staff as you: 

  • build knowledge of human anatomy
  • understand medical imaging processes—from X-ray and nuclear medicine to magnetic resonance and ultrasound
  • study mathematical principles involved in image formation
  • learn radiotherapy treatment techniques.

You’ll gain the opportunity to complete the coursework needed for accreditation as a medical physicist by the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine.
