|Description:||While the study of physics allows us to understand how the universe works, medical physics emphasizes the application of physics ideas and technology to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in the human body, particularly cancer.
Medical physics students are thoroughly prepared with the same courses and skills in scientific experiments, computation, and mathematics as other physics students, but, in addition, they specialize in the core areas of medical imaging (MRI, ultrasound, CT, nuclear medicine) and radiotherapy (the treatment of cancer with external beam radiation or implanted, radioactive sources). Laboratory classes are taught in part at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre and in the Baker Laboratory for Medical Physics Education. Our Honours Medical Physics program is designed to prepare you for graduate studies in medical physics, which will eventually lead to a career as a certified medical physicist. Graduates of the program have also gone on to medical school and other careers in physics.
