Graduate Education in Medical Radiation Physics

Denna sida på svenska

Medical Radiation Physics is responsible for the Medical Physics programme at Stockholm University.

The Medical Physics exam

Masters programme in Medical Physics, 300 credits

To practice as medical physicist in Sweden you are required to have a licence from the National Board of Health and Welfare.

The formal entry qualifications for the license is a medical physics exam.

The two first years of the program is common with the program for BSc in physics where basic courses in mathematics and physics are studied. The third year is dedicated to studies on how radiation is produced, absorbed and how it can be measured. During the fourth and fifth year the education is directed towards the medical applications and both radiotherapy and diagnostic methods are studied in detail. Part of this education is supervised vocational training practice at a medical physics department. The final part of the education is a degree project of 30 credit points.
