Physics with Medical Physics (BSc)
Cross-section of the wrist obtained by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), showing the bones and soft tissues in great detail.
The application of physics to the treatment and diagnosis of medical conditions is a rapidly expanding and exciting field of study. The course has been developed in conjunction with the University Hospital of Wales and the specialised modules are given by professional medical physicists from the School of Medical Physics and Bio-Engineering.
The course is designed to give you a thorough grounding in physics and a broad introduction to the many specialist areas of medical physics.
In the final year you will carry out a research project at the University Hospital of Wales where the particular interests are in Doppler ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, electrical impedance tomography, radiation physics, and body composition measurements.
