Medical Physics

University of Gdańsk
Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science
full-time first cycle degree,
full-time second cycle degree

The aim of the course is to convey the skill to understand and precisely describe physical phenomena and the ability to use modern measuring equipment and technical diagnostic systems. During the course, students obtain the knowledge of physics based on mathematics and natural sciences, which enables them to use physics in various fields of medicine and health protection. The biomedical knowledge obtained during the course will, in turn, facilitate contacts and understanding with medical staff. The curriculum also includes subjects related to the operation of various types of medical equipment used in diagnosis in hospitals, health centres and clinics (X-ray equipment, CAT scanners, gamma cameras etc.) and the physical methods used in medical diagnosis and radiotherapy. Graduates know how to use the correct physical methodology and equipment (therapeutic, diagnostic, measuring) measure physical phenomena in patients and equipment; inspect the correctness of the operation of medical and health care equipment; use the calculus of errors and statistics; serve as a medical hazard protection inspector, including especially as a radiological protection inspector.
