Medical Physicists are concerned with clinical service and consultation, academics and research. The areas are equally important in treating Cancer patients and developing new methods and techniques to deliver the benefits of radiation physics to the Cancer Patients. Medical physicists have the responsibility for ensuring radiation protection in all medical applications.
The syllabus would include subjects such as foundations of
In IVth semester, students undergo exclusively in Cancer Hospital training and acquiring the knowledge of Patients treatment, care and safety of the Radiotherapy department. The JSS AHER has signed memorandum of understanding with Bharath Cancer Hospital, Mysuru and Narayana Multispecialty Hospital Mysuru, for conducting practical classes related to radiation therapy and planning, radiation dose estimation and optimisation, image analysis, calibration, brachytherapy treatment planning, radiation response of thermoluminescent dosimeters, QA analyses of Diagnostic X-Ray units and so on. This course requires the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) approval. JSS AHER acquired the AERB Approval from the academic year 2018-19
Candidates who have completed BSc with physics as one of the optional and secured a minimum of 60% marks in physics are eligible for this M.Sc. Medical Physics Course.
After completing the course, one can become a Medical Physicist. Every hospital that uses radiation requires medical physicists. They can also become faculty members in departments of medical physics, radiology, radiation oncology, radiation biology, nuclear medicine and nuclear engineering. After completion of course with an internship (one year), students can appear for competency exam for Radiological Safety Officer conducted by the AERB, they can be employed as radiological safety officers in government and private Medical Colleges and Cancer Hospitals.
