Overview

The Medical Physics programme mainly consists of the studies of individual, environmental and substance exposure to radiation, focusing on the use of radiation for treatment and diagnosis of oncological diseases, and protection of individual and environment from unreasonable radiation. Knowledge, skills and competences are regulated by EC directive 2013/59/EURATOM; therefore graduates have unique prospects for international development and career.

Career opportunities

The amount of medical physics in the health care institutions is determined according to the number of patients and present equipment. Based on the international standards (IAEA, IOMP), according to the data of 2015, there is a lack of medical physics in the region.
Graduates work in all Lithuanian oncological centres and hospitals, Radiation Protection Centre and have established their private companies.

"Medical physics are needed in all medical institutions that use ionizing radiation; however, they are particularly necessary in the radiation therapy departments of clinical hospitals". – Klaipėda University Hospital, Chief Physician prof. hab. dr. Vinsas Janušonis.

"Only when I started working, I realised that everything we had learned during studies, without any exceptions, including not the most favourite subjects, was useful in everyday practice searching for the best ways to use the acquired knowledge in providing professional assistance to the patients with oncological diseases".LSMU Hospital Kauno Klinikos, Medical Physic Evelina Jaselskė.
