Welcome to the Department of Medical Physics

The mission of the Medical Physics Department is to help develop young physicists or engineers to be able to fulfill the role of either clinical medical physicist working in the hospital environment or research medical physicist employed in research laboratories or the biomedical device industry. In the spirit of inter-professional cooperation the Department also prides itself in its extensive expertise in teaching relevant aspects of the subject to other healthcare professionals.

Clinical medical physicists working in the hospital environment contribute to maintaining and improving the quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of healthcare services through patient-oriented activities requiring expert action, involvement or advice regarding the specification, selection, acceptance testing, commissioning, quality assurance and optimised clinical use of medical devices and protection from associated physical agents such as ionizing radiation and magnetic fields.

In the case of research oriented medical physicists the role is much wider. Here, physics concepts, theories and methods are used for the greater understanding and development of both clinical practice and experimental medicine. This is a wider definition than Clinical Medical Physics and would include physics based aspects of life science research that would have a future impact on healthcare e.g., advanced microscopy, nanodevices, biomolecular structure, cell biology physics.

The Department offers a Masters course in Medical Physics and is a prime actor in the development of medical physics curricula at the European level.

When someone makes a big impact in our life, or when someone changes the community for good, it’s fitting to honour their contributions. On Wednesday 26th September,  we honoured Professor Donia Baldacchino, whose contribution left an impact on her colleagues, her students, her alumni, her family and her friends to an extent that it changed their lives.....
Continuing Professional Development Study-Units

Each Academic Year, the Faculty of Health Sciences offers a number of Continuing Professional Development study-units for registered practitioners. The study-units are aimed to keep health professionals abreast of the continuing advances in the medical field and related technologies.

During Semester 2 of Academic Year 2018/9, the Faculty will be offering a number of study-units to registered professionals. Further details on this study-units to be offered may be accessed here.

Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Imaging (Ultrasound: Gynaecological and Obstetric)

This professional course is being delivered by staff members of the University or Malta as well as staff members from King's College London (KCL) via an electronic link. Staff from King's College London will be involved in the assessment and delivery of the course. KCL is accredited by the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE)

 

The course is set to commence in January 2019.
