Postgraduate education in Medical Radiation Physics

Most postgraduate students in i medical radiation physics are registered at Stockholm University and follow the study plan of Stockholm University.

The postgraduate programme corresponds to four years of fulltime studies for a doctor's degree or two years of fulltime studies for a licentiate degree. Most of the time is dedicated to active partcipation in a research project. The student chooses a supervisor, and they choose a research project together. Participation in courses and other educational activities are also part of the programme - the requirements are 75 ECTS for a doctoral degree and 45 ECTS for a licentiate degree.
