Bachelor of Medical & Radiation Physics Advanced (Honours)
The Bachelor of Medical & Radiation Physics Advanced (Honours) degree is designed to produce graduates (with a strong background in physics) with the specialist skills in Medical Radiation Physics necessary to find employment in hospitals, research or industry.
Students will gain knowledge in areas relating to nuclear medicine, radiation physics, detector and instrumentation physics and data analysis. Graduates working in the area require both a theoretical background and practical skills in physics with an emphasis on advanced knowledge and practice in specialist areas applicable to medical physics.
Professional medical physicists from major hospitals in the State will deliver key lectures and practical work as well as cosupervising thesis work. Students will find that they will move easily into employment and/or postgraduate work in this specialised area.
Honours
This fouryear degree will be awarded at either Pass or Honours level, depending on the studen's performance throughout the degree.
