Medical physicists are involved in three fields: clinical services and counseling, research and development (RD) and teaching. Given the difficulty of medical physicist’s position in medical environment, broad basic knowledge and practical experience are essential. Medical physicists require basic physical and mathematical knowledge, while close cooperation with doctors and other medical staff requires familiarity with basic medical sciences such as anatomy and physiology.
Programme provides, according to The Act of Ionizing Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety in Slovenia, training of a so called authorized medical physics expert, who is "an accredited person with required expertise in the field of physics or technology of ionizing radiation and their use in medicine (hereinafter: the field of medical physics) and is qualified to advise on the optimization, measurement and evaluation of patient exposure, development, planning and use of radiological procedures and equipment, while ensuring and verifying their quality”.
Graduates will be employed mainly by/in:
University Clinical Centers and larger hospitals,
businesses dealing with development and sale of medical equipment,
