MSc in Medical Physics with Radiobiology
The MSc in Medical Physics with Radiobiology is a one-year, full-time, course, designed for individuals interested in a career in medical physics, from either a clinical or academic research perspective, or in professions that require a knowledge of medical physics, such as radiation protection.
The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) accredit Master's programs in medical physics by means of specific accreditation standard. As this is a brand new course for the 2023/24 academic year it has been awarded provisional accreditation status at this stage. The course will be subject to further inspection for full accreditation once the first cohort of students have completed. Provided full accreditation is granted, students studying this course in the 2023/24 academic year will be eligible to receive the IPEM accredited degree qualification.
The MSc leadership team is comprised of a Course Director and a Course Teaching Fellow:
- Dr Daniel McGowan MIPEM, Course Director in the Department of Oncology, Head of Research and Education, Consultant Clinical Scientist in the Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
- Dr Tom Whyntie MIPEM, Director of Studies and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Oncology, Advising researcher in MR Linac (imaging physics); and data management consultant (clinical trials, imaging data).
This course is offered for the 2023/24 academic year subject to final approval by the University.
