The Physical Sciences in Medicine are concerned with the application and development of the principles and techniques of the numerate sciences to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human disease. In the health service, the Physical Sciences are manifest in diagnostic radiology, radiation therapy and clinical engineering. Each of these three areas involves the provision of scientific, engineering, and technical and R & D services in a hospital setting.

An increase in the amount and complexity of medical technology means that there is a need for additional scientific and technical support.

In these web pages you can learn more about Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering, as well as getting further information on the MSc in Physical Sciences in Medicine.
