PROGRAMME DESCRIPTIONThis programme explores the use of physical methods to benefit human health: a massively expanding area of work with very great challenges. You will explore topics such as radiation protection, respiration and hearing, X-rays in medicine, cardiac function, medical ultrasound, nuclear medicine and artificial limbs.

The medical physics components are taught by the Department of Medical Engineering and Physics at King's.

ABOUT THE Department of Physics
CAREERS Physics students are in high demand because employers recognise the wide range of skills that they possess. Physicists are trained to be good problem solvers and to think logically and apply mathematical and computational techniques to real problems. It is not surprising that our graduates are found in many areas of employment, where they can exploit their skills. Recent graduates have found employment as… • Actuarial Analyst, Willis • Physics Tutor, Tutoring Agency • Project Engineer, Cryogenic Ltd • Publishing Editor, Royal Society of Chemistry • Researcher, Cornell University • Risk Analyst, City Index • Performance Manager, Bradford Commerce
TEACHING STYLE The majority of teaching is performed by lectures and laboratory classes, tutorials and through project work. All academic staff are involved with the undergraduate teaching programme. Each student has a personal tutor and the department encourages an open atmosphere in which students feel able to easily approach academic staff. The Student-Staff Committee provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and feedback on teaching. Staff and students are members of the Maxwell Society: the departments social and lecture society.
STRUCTURE OF PROGRAMMES & ASSESSMENT The programmes have a common core of physics modules, with some optional modules each year for single honours students. We place great emphasis on problem solving and project work, which teaches team-work, group organisation, and the skills of oral and poster presentations. We also allow advanced students to work with a school, to experience teaching and develop the skill of presenting information at an understandable level. Students registered for the MSci degree take almost exactly the same modules in the first three years as those taking the BSc degree in Physics. The fourth year provides a wide range of specialised physics options through an intercollegiate London programme, while the MSci project work is a genuine research project.
LOCATION The department is located in newly refurbished dedicated office space, with views over the Thames to the London Eye and Westminster. The central location of our department gives easy access to major libraries and many leading societies including the Institute of Physics.
