The Medical Physics Group offers its program in conjunction with the with the BC Cancer Agency - Vancouver Island Centre (VIC), with additional project and supervision options available at the BC Cancer Agency's Centre for the Southern Interior (Kelowna) and the Life Sciences program of TRIUMF. Our research group currently consists of eight members (split between UVIC and VIC), with student supervision typically being jointly undertaken at UVic and VIC. Additional supervision is available through the Kelowna clinic. Research in our group concentrates on a number of areas, including Monte Carlo development and application, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, medical imaging, polymer gel dosimetry, radiobiological modelling, Raman spectroscopy, 3D ultrasound, and image processing as related to breast imaging and Neural Networks.
In addition to graduate programs at the Masters and PhD levels, a CAMPEP accredited Certificate Program in medical physics is also available.
