Medical Physics Graduate Program

Welcome to the UVic graduate program in Medical Physics.

The admission requirement to a Medical Physics graduate program is a UVic Honours degree in Physics, or equivalent. Students admitted to the Master's program, but with backgrounds judged to be less than that of a UVic Honours degree (e.g., a Major degree), are normally required to take additional undergraduate courses in Physics and Mathematics to satisfy the stated prerequisite.  In addition to degrees at the Masters and Doctoral levels, there is also a CAMPEP accredited Certificate Program in medical physics.

As this is a very popular program, we typically receive more applications than we have available spots, hence, applications are reviewed and offers made on a competitive basis.

Courses at graduate level in Medical Physics include:
PHYS 534  Radiotherapy Physics I
PHYS 535  Radiotherapy Physics II
PHYS 539  Radiation Dosimetry
PHYS 540  Medical Imaging
PHYS 544  Topics in Radiation Biophysics
PHYS 545  Anatomy and Physiology for the Medical Physicist
PHYS 546  Clinical Shadowing
