Proton therapy is big news in the fight against cancer. Offering next-level precision, it’s an attractive option for treating many tumours close to healthy organs or in children.

Consequently, the treatment’s global market is expected to double by 2024. Australia’s first proton therapy centre will be part of the neighbouring South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute II, while China has around 50 centres on the way. Specialists in the area are in short supply—and high demand—worldwide.

Our Master of Medical Radiation Physics will equip you for a rewarding career in this exciting health field. The degree is studied over two years full-time and is suitable for students with an undergraduate physics degree, or engineering graduates seeking a change of specialisation.

Highly clinically oriented, it will enable you to:

  • master theoretical and practical mathematics and physics as they relate to clinical radiotherapy and medical imaging
  • learn from highly accomplished and internationally experienced medical physicists practising at the esteemed Royal Adelaide Hospital
  • collect, analyse, critically evaluate and synthesise quantitative and qualitative data relating to physics and medical physics
  • build high-level problem-solving and communication skills
  • develop advanced research skills through a major final-year research project.
