Medical Physics Education

The Medical Physics program at Lund University is a 5-year program in the Faculty of Science, given in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine and Region Skåne. The first two years cover fundamental physics and mathematics, while the latter part of the program focus on medical radiation physics, with emphasis on the clinical orientation towards diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Many teachers are clinically active Medical Physicists, and most laboratory exercises are carried out using state-of-the-art equipment in the hospital. The last year of the program includes clincal practice and an individual Master Thesis project. To work as a Medical Physicist in Sweden you need a licence, which is issued by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare after completed exam. The syllabus for the entire program can be found here.


The Swedish Medical Physics Program

Please note that the Medical Physics program in Lund is given in Swedish only. More information about the central admission to the program is found here (in Swedish).


Foreign Education

If you already have a degree in Physics (at least a B.Sc. or similar), it may be possible to apply directly to the latter part of the program, please contact the department for more information.

If you already have a licence from another country you need to get your qualifications recognised to be able to get a licence valid in Sweden. For more information, please visit one of the following links:
