Medical Physics

Main content

The track Medical Physics concentrates on the applications of physics to medical applications in radiotherapy and imaging. In addition to core lectures on medical imaging and radiotherapy, the track provides lectures on radiation biology and professional aspects of medical physics, together with various options in medical physics related subjects like hadron therapy and applied physics in the fight against cancer. Masters projects can be performed at PSI, ETH or various hospital based medical physics departments in Switzerland.
