IIIT Hyderabad to Launch Medical Physics Course

Sangareddy: International Institute of Information Technology-Hyderabad (IIT-H) will soon launch a three-year Master of Science (MSc) program in medical physics in collaboration with Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital and Research Institute (BIACH&RI).

The program aims to provide world-class medical physicist specialist training in the concepts and techniques of applying physics in medicine. It intends to provide clinical orientation for radiation physics, clinical immersion and shadowing, industry and clinical lectures, short-term projects, and a clinical internship in the third year for 12 months.

The students will benefit from the academic acumen of IIT-H’s faculty and the practical expertise of the institute. This program is ideal for BSc candidates with physics as one of the main subjects and those who want to make a career in applied physics for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. Candidates with these qualifications can apply directly to IIT-H admissions.

The applications will be screened based on the marks obtained in the qualifying degree. An interview will also be conducted online. The program requires the students to complete 90 credits across three years, consisting of two years of course work (66 credits) and one year (24 credits) of mandatory medical physics and clinical internship after completing the coursework and declaration of results.

Talking about the program’s relevance with the National Education Policy-2020, IIT-H director Prof BS Murty said: “The IIT-H has well-established departments of Biomedical Engineering and Physics providing UG, PG, and Ph.D. programs wherein students solve various challenges of the healthcare sector.

The MSc (Medical Physics) program is the third PG program in the field of healthcare at IIT-H, which, in line with the NEP, not only provides a strong academic background to students but also hands-on training in the form of a year-long clinical internship which makes them industry-ready.”

Elaborating on the objectives of the program, the director and head of Surgical Oncology at BIACH&RI, Dr. T Subramaneshwar Rao, said IIT-H and BIACH&RI have joined hands to create a leading program to train future medical and radiation physicists.
