About Centre For Medical Physics
The Centre for Medical Physics was created in 2007, as a joint venture of Panjab University and Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, to utilize technology-dependent specialities coming out of the new
scientific innovations for the immediate need of the society, i.e. good health. Medical Physics is an established clinical speciality with wide-ranging applications in radiotherapy planning and treatment. It can be defined as embracing all applications of radioactive sources in the treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous diseases. The students of medical physics discipline gain knowledge about different types of equipment used in radiotherapy planning and treatment and their quality assurances. Medical Physicists play a leading role in the areas of radiation safety and development of instrumentation/technology for use in radiation therapy and diagnostic radiology. There is ample scope for research in the area of medical physics. Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) is the regulatory body for the M.Sc. Medical Physics Course. The syllabus of Medical Physics course has been designed in such a way that it shall make the student a competent Medical Physicist,
researcher, Radiation Safety Officer, and teacher after qualifying this course. Besides, a certification for the Radiation Safety Officer (Level-III) from the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) to the students is mandatory for them to be
qualified in running the radiation facilities independently and handling of the treatment of patients.
- External beam radiotherapy
- Radiation protection
The Centre for Medical Physics has 100% placements in the medical institutions /universities, accelerator/reactor laboratories. Our students have got placements in the medical institutions like PGIMER (Chandigarh), Govt. Medical College (Chandigarh), Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (New Delhi), IGMC (Shimla) and many other hospitals in the country. Students are also pursuing Ph.D. in India and abroad.
The alumni are invited to participate to celebrate International Day of Medical Physics every year on 7th November on the occasion of the birthday of Nobel Laureate Marie Curie. It gives a platform to its alumni to share their experiences and also act as a motivator for the students of the Centre.
