The History, Development, and Realisation of Medical Radiation Physics Education in Sweden
Summary, in English
‘Medical Physicist’ became a protected professional title and a state-registered health care profession in 1999. Physicists must now hold a licence to practise any sub-area of the profession, that is, diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance tomography, or radiation therapy. In addition, the medical physicist must obtain expert skills and knowledge in radiation protection of both ionising and non-ionising radiation.
The university departments at Gothenburg, Lund, Stockholm and Umeå Universities, have the authority to award a degree of Master of Science in Medical Physics. These departments have in close symbiosis with their respective university hospitals developed the education programmes over more than 50 years, aim to produce qualified medical physicists with expertise in all the fields of medical radiation physics to meet the changing needs of the health-care sector and society at large. The programmes also provide a good academic grounding and a scientific approach, preparing graduates for a future research career.
