Bachelor of Science - Medical Physics (Optional Co-op) at Ryerson University: Tuition: $28,969.00 CAD/year (Scholarship Available)

Using physics concepts in the field of medicine, the Medical Physics program will teach students the methodologies to medical imaging, radiation therapy, radiation protection and dosimetry. The program offers work placement opportunities , state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, and practical training that will prepare students for real-life work experiences.

First-year students focus on building their common science foundations with Biology, Chemistry, Contemporary Science and Medical Physics.  In the upper years, students will develop expertise and technical skills in physics, focusing on the applications of physics principles and methodologies in medicine, such as diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy. Students will also explore applications in health physics which deals with environmental exposures to radiation. Laboratory work will provide students with relevant practical experiences, reinforcing key concepts. In the final year, students will consolidate their learning by undertaking an independent, faculty-supervised thesis project in an area of their academic focus.

NOTE: The optional co-op program in Medical Physics offers graduating students an opportunity to complete up to twenty months of work experience that enhances their organizational and technical abilities as well as their oral and written communication skills.

Students graduating from the program will acquire training in the multidisciplinary field that is of critical importance to Canada. Graduating students will have the necessary skills to:
  • be admitted into a graduate program in Medical Physics, Medical Biophysics, Biophysics or Physics (Additional physics courses might be required);
  • secure an entry level position in Health Physics (with, for example, Hydro One);
  • secure industrial employment in the biomedical technology, bioinformatics and health sectors;
  • secure a Clinical Physics Assistant or Research Assistant position at an Ontario Cancer Centre;
  • work as technicians in research laboratories or companies; as well as
  • proceed to professional school (Medicine, Education, Business and Law).
