PHYS4013 - Physics in the Medical Field

This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring the fundamentals of the physics concepts of motion and forces, optics, electricity and magnetism, and radiation as they relate to systems of the human body. The emphasis is on how physics has improved the diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury, emerging technologies, and their implications. Students will utilize basic algebra techniques and technology to interact with simulations, perform simple experiments, and solve simple medical physics problems.
