The second-level Master's aims to provide specific academic-professional training in the field of Medical Physics and is structured around three specific thematic areas:

  • Medical Physics of Diagnostic Imaging
  • Medical Physics for Oncological Therapy
  • Radiation Dosimetry

According to international guidelines, before undertaking a clinical training program, medical physicists require appropriate post-graduate academic education to acquire the foundational knowledge upon which to build the acquisition of specializations and skills necessary for professional activities in a hospital setting.

The Master's program, therefore, has the following structure:

  • The first year is based on a post-graduate program in Medical Physics, which includes courses taught by both academic faculty and medical physicists with proven clinical experience. In the third trimester, students can choose in-depth courses in either radiotherapy or diagnostic imaging. The two study plans differ by 4 credits.
  • A second year of guided and personalized clinical internship at an affiliated hospital ("residency").
