Master’s course in Medical Physics »

Overview

In 2017, the International Sakharov Environmental Institute of Belarusian State University (ISEI BSU) launched the Master’s degree program in Medical Physics.

Medical physics is, in general, the application of physics techniques to medical practice.

Medical physicists are highly trained healthcare professionals with specialized training in the medical applications of radiation physics to diagnose and treat   cancer and other diseases.

Traditionally, medical physicists deal with the use of x-rays and accelerated charged particles, radioactive substances, ultrasound, magnetic and electric fields, infrared and ultraviolet light, heat and lasers in diagnosis and therapy.

Working closely with doctors, medical physicists play a central role in developing, planning and implementing patient treatment programs.

Medical physicists also help to oversee the safe use of radiation. Medical physicists work in cancer treatment facilities, or hospital-based research establishments.

The syllabus for our Master’s course in Medical Physics will provide you with the knowledge, skills and experience required for a modern graduate medical physicist.

At present, the ISEI BSU Master’s degree program in Medical Physics is the only one in Belarus.

Why this program

A key strength of this program is that the master’s students will be trained mostly by the most experienced professionals working in Minsk City Clinical Oncologic Dispensary and in N. N. Alexandrov National Cancer Centre of Belarus.
