ACADEMICS

Medical physics is a profession that combines principles of physics and engineering with those of biology and medicine to effect better diagnosis and treatment of human disease while ensuring the safety of the public, patients and those caring for them.

Most medical physicists are employed at universities and hospitals with a smaller number in research institutes, government health agencies, and industrial organizations. A few are self-employed, usually as consultants. Frequently, the hospital in which a medical physicist works is associated with a medical school, and the physicist is a member of the academic staff.

PGDMRS is a professional course at the Post Graduate Level, that prepares the students for clinical practice as a medical physicist. The PGDMRS course offers students course work and practical clinical training in Medical Radiological physics as it is applied to the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. Required course work provides theoretical and practical training in radiation dosimetry, radiation biology, radiation therapy, imaging, and health physics. Graduates of this Post Graduate Medical Physics program typically go on to successful clinical and academic careers where they contribute to all specialty areas of medical physics

  1. I would like to get information on this PGDMRS program more and also about the syllabus for the entrance examination.
    Even though it says MSc Physics based questions. But want to know deep to crack the examination.

    Thank you
