ICTP is now accepting applications for its Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics (MMP) programme.
The MMP is a two-year advanced training programme run jointly by ICTP and the University of Trieste. The programme is designed to provide young, promising graduates of physics or related fields (mainly from developing countries) with postgraduate theoretical and clinical training so that they may be recognised as clinical medical physicists in their home countries.
The programme comprises a year of basic and advanced courses (taught in English) prepared with the assistance of experts from ICTP’s UN partner the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This is followed by a year of professional clinical training in a medical physics department of a hospital in the programme’s training network.
The minimum qualification for applicants is a degree equivalent to an MSc in physics or related fields. The selection of candidates will be based on their university performance, research activity and professional experience in the field. Adequate proficiency in English language is required. The Programme is open to young (generally below 30 years of age) qualified graduates from countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA.
The university course fees for the Master’s Programme is 2200 euro for the entire cycle.
Qualified candidates may attend the course at their own cost. A limited number of partial or full scholarships will be awarded to successful candidates from developing countries. ICTP will also cover, on the basis of a detailed request, travel costs and course fees for a limited number of successful candidates from developing countries who are not awarded the full or partial scholarship.
How to Apply?
Individuals wishing to apply for the Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics must complete the online application form.
