Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This award is offered within the Postgraduate Scheme in Health Technology, which aims to provide students with a background in physics, engineering and/or health technology, as well as those interested in medical physics, with the opportunity to develop knowledge of and skills in medical physics.

A. Advancement in Knowledge and Skills

  • To introduce students to core knowledge of medical physics, including radiation therapy, diagnosing imaging, nuclear medicine and radiation safety physics;
  • To expose students to the field of health science and technology;
  • To provide an appropriate learning environment for the exchange of knowledge and ideas between students, teachers and professionals;
  • To equip students with the knowledge of and skills in clinical medical physics necessary to become clinical medical physics professionals; and
  • To help students to develop the critical and analytical abilities and skills needed to pursue further studies and solve challenging clinical problems.

B. Professional Development

  • To develop students' critical analysis and evaluation ability;
  • To cultivate in students the qualities and attributes that are expected of healthcare professionals;
  • To promote greater awareness and reflection within the profession and the healthcare industry to improve the quality of healthcare services; and
  • To develop students' leadership ability.

C. Evidence-based Practice

  • To equip students with the necessary research skills to enable them to engage in evidence-based practice regarding the delivery of healthcare services.

D. Personal Development

  • To allow graduates to develop themselves further after graduation.

Characteristics

The scope of the programme includes radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine and medical health physics, and thus fulfils the educational requirements of a medical physicist. The curriculum is aligned with the international standards of medical physics graduate education. The teaching faculty include a large number of experienced clinical professionals, including clinical medical physicists, oncologists and radiologists. The programme prepares students for careers in clinical medical physics, medical technology research and development, academia, government regulation, the healthcare industry, entrepreneurship, etc.

課程簡介


本課程為醫療科技深造組合課程之一。

醫療科技深造組合課程專為醫學影像、放射治療、醫療化驗科學培育專業人才,亦為有興趣研習醫療科技的人士提供發展先進知識和技術的機會。本課程能:

  • 讓他們在各自的專業學科上作深入探究,藉以全面提升他們的專業知識,從而有助其日後在事業上的發展。
