Medical radiation physics is an interdisciplinary physics subject with application to mathematics, medicine biology and chemistry. The subject covers the use of radiation mainly in medicine in both diagnostic and therapeutic applications, but also within industrial applications like nuclear power. Medical Physics is an applied branch of physics devoted to the application of concepts and methods from physics to the diagnosis and treatment of human disease.

Medical physicists are concerned with three primary areas of activity: clinical service and consultation, research and development, and teaching. At the end of the study the student has basic knowledge in the aspects of medical and biomedical areas relevant to the profession, a profound knowledge of nuclear physics and nuclear chemical aspects relevant to the profession (radiation detection, radiochemistry, radiation protection, the skill to apply in a correct way and to choose the correct method of basic techniques and some advanced/specialized methods in radiotherapy, radiology or nuclear medicine; and sufficient independence and sense of responsibility to take important decisions. The syllabus for the course is divided into four semesters.
