1-31 80 22 Medical Physics:

 

  1. Computer Medicine
  2. Physical Methods in Medicine (full time)

 

Students study Relevant issues of biological and medical physics, physical methods applied in oncology and radiology, diagnostics, therapy.

Students undergo two week research training during the studies. Training based on regional and city cancer centers.

The opportunity to study the following additional disciplines: 

“Philosophy and methodological science”, “Foreign language”, “Fundamentals of information technologies” followed by a candidate’s examination and a credit necessary to enter a postgraduate course.

Graduates • gain skills in applying physical methods in medicine, skills in working with medical equipment applied, mainly, in oncology, medical radiology for diagnostics and treatment purposes;

Leading specialists of healthcare institutions (including cancer centers) are involved in the educational process.

Requirements completed higher education (bachelor’s degree);

• successfully pass the interview both on language proficiency (English or Russian) and profile disciplines.

Description of study Period of study: September 1 – June 30. There are 2 week holidays between semesters in winter. Students write a master’s thesis in the 3rd (4) semester.
