Overview

Master of Science - Health and Radiation Physics

Health Physics is interdisciplinary, bridging the fields of medicine, biology, engineering and physical science. It provides scientific method and knowledge of Radiation Protection to the Health Care and Nuclear industries and regulatory bodies.

The program consists of a course- and project-based MSc. Research is conducted with faculty using McMaster radiation facilities or at industrial partners facilities. Some students are presently working in the Health Physics field in industry and pursue the program part-time.

Areas of Research

  • Brachytherapy radioisotopes, interface dosimetry, imaging dose distributions, neutron micro-dosimetry;
  • Nuclear and atomic techniques used for analysis of both trace toxic elements and major components of human body composition;
  • Development of novel radiopharmaceuticals and medical use of radioisotopes in diagnosis and therapy;….
