You'll learn about the human body, its anatomy, physiology and biochemistry, exploring its performance as a physical machine. Other topics include the physics of the senses. You'll also study diagnostic and therapeutic applications like the ECG, radiation physics, X-ray technology, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging.
Medical physics modules are taught by the Department of Cardiovascular Science. Your learning will have strong roots in the NHS, where the department provides day-to-day clinical services.
If you want to study physics, but don't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the first year, our Physics with a Foundation Year could be for you. After successfully completing the one-year programme, you'll progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.
Accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP) for the purpose of fully meeting the educational requirement for Chartered Physicist.
