Aims/Description: The aim of the medical physics project is to provide an opportunity for students to develop and apply their skills to a research problem. A range of projects are offered across the spectrum of physics and engineering applications, and many will address current medical or clinical needs. Students are encouraged to work in groups of two or three to develop team skills. In addition to creation of written reports, students will conclude the project with a viva involving formal presentation to graduate staff in the city hospitals.

Teaching Methods: Tutorials, Problem solving, Laboratory work, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work, Project work, Practical skills assessment, Vivavoce
