Level and workload

Academic level
The course does not have any formal requirements or application procedures. You simply just register online if you want to participate. The course content and scientific level is, however, intended for science students following a graduate program, i.e. master and PhD students. For an optimal learning outcome, we therefore recommend that you have acquired at least a bachelor’s degree in science/engineering or similar before attending this course.

The intended audience is clinical medical physicists, master and PhD students in medical physics, biomedical engineering, biophysics, or, (medical) computer science. Further, technically oriented physicians in the field of ionizing radiation (radiation oncology, radiology and nuclear medicine) or veterinarians working with image modalities would also benefit from taking the course.

The course workload is expected as follows:
Category         Hours
Lectures          12,00
Exercises         12,00
Preparation    20,00
Exam                  1,50
Sum                  45,50

This workload has been estimated by the PhD school of Science at the University of Copenhagen to correspond to 2.0 ETCS points  This course has previously accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Medical Physics (EBAMP) as CPD event for Medical Physicists at EQF Level 7 for a five day event. From this, this four day course correspond to 93 CPD credit points (61 CPD credit points for those who do not sit for or do not pass the examination).

The course has been evaluated and subsequently endorsed by the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and the European Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics (EFOMP).
