Aimed at physics graduates and graduates with related degrees, this postgraduate course focuses primarily on the application of medical physics in hospitals.
The curriculum covers the theoretical knowledge and practical know-how required by hospital medical physicists working in patient diagnosis and treatment, and by medical physicists working in leading positions within companies that develop and manufacture innovative medical technology. Students study the requirements of section 28 of the Austrian Radiation Protection Ordinance and will be qualified to act as a radiation safety officer. Graduates will also be certified and licensed by the Austrian government as qualified medical physicists to independently carry out all of the medical physics activities which come under the Austrian Radiation Protection Ordinance for Applications in Medicine.
