Master's Degree Programme in Medical Physics


This Master's degree in Medical Physics is a multidisciplinary two-year master's degree programme that combines high level research and teaching. The programme is designed for all nationalities and maximum 15 students will be accepted into the programme.

To apply for the programme the applicant is expected to have a three year Bachelor´s degree or equivalent university degree in an applicable field (Physics or Engineering), and very good skills in both written and spoken English. Learn more about the admission requirements.

In the programme curriculum theory meets practice: the program includes a possibility for a clinical practicum at the Kuopio University Hospital, consisting of, e.g., quality assurance measurements, training in radiation dosage planning for cancer treatment, and getting familiar with routine tasks of a medical physicist. The clinical practicum can be replaced with a research practicum at one of the hig class research groups at the Department of Applied Physics at the Univeristy of Eastern Finland. The curriculum of the medical physics programme has been constructed in a way that in addition to compulsory courses a student has also, optional courses or study modules which can be freely included in the studies according to students´ academic interests and future plans. Learn more about the programme curriculum.

In addition to the training in medical physics, students will gain critical research skills necessary for post graduate studies in the field of medical physics and technology. Moreover, the programme serves as a launch pad for young and talented students aspiring for a career in the medical technology and diagnostics industry. Students who have successfully completed the programme will be awarded with Master's Degree in Medical Physics.

The next application period will be open in the end of 2017 for the programme 2018 - 2020.
