Hello, I'm going to do Alevel and I would like to know what subjects i require for medical physics, just by picking a course in Physics i could then follow from there a degree in medical physics right? Could this help me to work in a hospital with ultra sound and MRI scan etc?

Thanks a lot for your time

Check out University websites of those who offer Medical Physics degrees; find out what prior qualifications they want.

Medical physics?? Take maths and physics, and probably one of biology and chemistry. But that's an educated guess I'm afraid.

Are you thinking of getting a degree in physics then PhD in medical physics? Or do medical physics degrees exist? Even if they do exist, you'd probably learn more from learning physics then doing a PhD. Or are you thinking of studying medicine then specialising in MRI stuffs?

And yes, work experience will certainly aid your uni application.

Hi,

I'm doing a few modules in medical physics next term. I think the best science combination would be Physics, Maths and Biology at A-level. If you're doing 4, chuck in either Chemistry or a humanity as well.

Well I've heard doing Physics, Maths and computing will be quite good since you need programming skills for physics degree which im doing to later go and specialise in medical physics is that right? is it better to choose computing than biology for this?

Thanks for your time
