Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Biological and Medical Physics

The program emphasizes the application of physics to biology and medicine. It provides an excellent background for careers in the expanding interdisciplinary research laboratories of government and industry, as well as a starting point for a career in medical physics. 

Completion of the program at an appropriate level will qualify a student to pursue post-graduate studies in biophysics, medical physics and related areas of physics.

Many areas of biological physics have important implications for human health, like the probing of molecular structure in muscle by X-ray diffraction. 

Study courses such as Biophysics of Excitable Cells, Radioactivity and Radiation Interactions, Molecular Biophysics, and Clinical Applications of Physics in Medicine, building a solid knowledge base for careers in clinical research and health services.

Many biological and medical problems involve techniques and concepts of physics. Biological physics plays a vital role in human health while medical physics provides the background for clinical tools such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and CAT scans. 

Courses include Biophysics of Excitable Cells, Radioactivity and Radiation, and Clinical Applications of Physics, providing an excellent education for careers in clinical research and in health services.

Also available in co-op.

The Co-op program in Biological and Medical Physics is a five year program, including five work terms. Students must complete a Fall, Winter and Summer work term.

Note: A minimum of four Co-op work terms including a Summer, Fall, and Winter are necessary to complete the Co-op requirement. *A fifth Co-op work term is optional and if completed, the total number of credits will equal 22.50.
