Overview

Medical Physics is a branch of Applied Physics that uses Physics principles, methods and techniques in practice and research for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases with a specific goal of improving human health and well-being.

Dr.N.G.P. Arts and Science College offers two-year Master of Medical Physics programme through Department of Basic and Applied Sciences since 2012 and it has been approved by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), Mumbai. Dr.N.G.P. Arts and Science College has collaboration with Kovai Medical Center and Hospital, Coimbatore to utilize their facilities for academic activities of Medical Physics students during course work. The programme aims at providing a comprehensive introduction to the academic, research and practical aspects of Physics applied to radiation medicine. The main focus of the course is to prepare the students for a career as clinical Medical Physicists and Radiological Safety Officers.

Medical Physicists work in clinical, academic or research institutions in India and abroad. Medical Physicists working in clinical environment are health professionals. The principal functions and responsibilities are establishment and implementation of health care technologies with emphasis on patient diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Also they involve in acceptance and commissioning of equipment, radiation dosimetry, governance of radiation protection and safety programs, quality assurance programmes, research and teaching.

To strengthen the professional development and to promote professional competency for Medical Physicists who are working in Clinical/industry, Radiological Physics and Advisory Division (RP&AD) of Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC) conducts Radiological Safety Officer (RSO) certification examination.
