Clinical Radiation Therapy Physics

This course consists exclusively in practice in radiation therapy performed at the hospital. The course therefore aims at making you familiar with typical tasks for a medical physicist at a radiotherapy department, and understand the role of the medical physicist in radiotherapy.

The course covers the clinical application of physical and biological processes for radiation therapy and is a continuation of the theoretical course in radiotherapy.
You will participate actively to patient-related activities, and acquire deep knowledge of the diagnostic process from input to definition of target volume, treatment planning and implementation.
After taking the course you will be able to describe the flow around the radiotherapy chain, use clinically applied treatment protocols, master the clinical application of previously acquired knowledge in diagnosis, treatment planning, optimization, dosimetry, image processing and statistics and give examples of how the theoretical knowledge of radiotherapy is applied in the clinical practice.

  • Course structure

    This is an advanced course given during the daytime. The course is included in the Master`s Programme in Medical Physics.

    Teaching format

    The education consists of practical demonstrations at the radiotherapy department within the hospital and self-study.


    The course is examined through an oral presentation of an assignment.
