The main goal of the PhD programme in Medical Physics is to carry out independent research in an interdisciplinary field that combines physics and medicine, as well as other sciences (e.g. computer science, biology, pharmacy).

On successful completion of the programme, PhD students become experts in the field of medical physics, making them employable in a wide range of activities from academia to industry and the clinical setting.
