Learning Outcomes

Medical Physics

Graduates of the Master of Medical Physics will:

  1. Apply expert theoretical knowledge and an integrated understanding across all areas of medical physics.
  2. Utilise advanced problem-solving skills to analyse outputs and diagnose problems to ensure quality assurance for all procedures.
  3. Investigate, critically evaluate and synthesise complex information on research in medical physics, identifying the validity and quality of information sources and identifying knowledge gaps.
  4. Apply advanced technical skills to critically evaluate and optimise the performance of medical equipment and procedures in the translation of research into professional practice.
  5. Interpret the significance and scope of ethical principles and the application of these principles in medical physics.
  6. Justify, interpret and effectively communicate expert disciplinary knowledge, technical research findings and evidence-based solutions to issues in medical physics in written, visual and oral modes of communication, to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
  7. Demonstrate initiative and a high degree of independence to work effectively and responsibly in an individual context and within diverse interdisciplinary teams.
  8. Plan and execute an individual research project in a prescribed period including conducting a literature review, discussing project results and communicating findings through written, visual and oral modes of communication.
