O que eu aprenderei?

The master's program in Medical Radiation Sciences is an ideal choice for students with a physically or biologically oriented bachelor's degree who are interested in in-depth application or research-oriented training in the field of medical radiation science. The degree program integrates the excellent research areas of the Medical Faculty in the areas of radiation therapy and radio oncology, medical physics, non-invasive imaging as well as cellular and molecular tumor and radiation biology. The courses are offered by renowned scientists from the field of basic research as well as clinical research and enable a deep insight into the field of interdisciplinary medical radiation science.

The master's program offers students a master's degree in the profile area "Biomedical Radiation Research" or in the profile area "Medical Physics Expert (MPE) according to the Radiation Protection Ordinance (StrlSchV)" within the framework of a Y model. Depending on the inclination of the successful applicants, they will be assigned to one of the two profile areas from the first semester.

Our goal is to enable students to successfully start their careers in the future areas of application or research-oriented medical radiation science in relation to various professional challenges.

Medical physics experts are postgraduate, officially recognized specialists for physical tasks in radiological subjects in medicine (medical radiation physics, nuclear medicine, radiological diagnostics, radiation therapy, radiology). The training to become a medical physics expert must be carried out as a practical activity (“expertise period”) in approved clinics and lasts 2 years.

At the Medical Faculty of the University of Tübingen, additional scientific training is completed within this two-year postgraduate training in combination with the master's program in Medical Radiation Sciences, which leads to the M.Sc. in Medical Radiation Sciences.

The course content fulfills all requirements of the German supervisory authorities for the knowledge of MPE as well as the broader requirements of the German Society for Medical Physics (DGMP) and the European Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics (EFOMP)

Typical work tasks of a medical physics expert (MPE):

optimization of radiation application and patient dosimetry
the elaboration of the physical part of the radiation planning
structural and technical radiation protection
Development of new examination and treatment procedures
Quality assurance and quality control
the equipment of clinical areas
Instructions of the MTA in device operation In Europe, especially in Germany, there is a shortage of trained medical physics experts. Graduates have excellent career prospects. The range of positions ranges from medical utilities to the medical technology industry.

What is special about the Tübingen program?

The interprofessional and innovative Master's program in Medical Radiation Sciences is characterized by a very strong practical and research orientation as well as interdisciplinarity.

The courses are embedded in a modern technological and medical environment and are carried by a team of internationally recognized scientists and medical physics experts. Low student numbers offer the possibility of very individual support.

Graduates are well prepared for the various challenges in professional life and have excellent career prospects in the field of medical radiation science.

Career prospects

The master's program is two years long (four semesters) and comprises a total of 120 ECTS points. Upon successful completion, the students acquire the Master of Science (M. Sc.) And additionally receive the certificate of the Medical Physics Expert (MPE) from the German Supervisory Authority.
