Master of Medical Radiation Sciences Program
OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS
The Master program Medical Radiation Sciences is addressed to young scientists and engineers holding a first academic degree (e.g. Bachelor). The objective of the program is to provide education including practical training in physics and biology related disciplines required for medical application of ionizing radiation. The teaching program covers those branches of physics, biology, chemistry, technology and medicine, which are relevant for radiotherapy, diagnostic radiology as well as in nuclear medicine. The aim of the course is to train experts either in medical radiation physics or medical radiation biology. The labor market lacks these skills, opening graduates of the Master program the best chances for a successful career.
The Master program is integrated in the Postgraduate School of the National Center for Radiation Research in Oncology - OncoRay. Lectures and modules are embedded in a modern technological and medical environment and are supported by an interdisciplinary team of internationally well-known and distinguished scientists. Master theses are performed in the OncoRay research groups or co-operating groups, who provide highly attractive scientific topics.
Consecutive Master program, 120 CP, primarily application-oriented, 4 semesters, matriculation every winter semester after passing an admission procedure, no study fees
