More information



The Master’s degree in Physical Sciences – Biomedical Physics is a track (curriculum) of the Master’s degree program in Physical Sciences offered by the University of Pavia. This Master’s Degree Program is entirely taught in English language.

To attend this Master’s Degree Program, a solid knowledge of Modern Physics and in its theoretical, experimental and application-oriented aspects is required, together with a solid mastery of the scientific method of investigation. It is also necessarily required to possess an in-depth knowledge of measuring instruments and data analysis techniques, as well as the necessary knowledge of mathematical and IT support tools.

The Master’s degree in Physical Sciences – Biomedical physics curriculum provides physical, biological and radiobiological knowledge, calculation tools, physical techniques and skills on instrumentation and mathematical methods also used in hospitals and medical industry.
The program focuses on basic and applied research in fields such as: medical diagnostics (for example with the development of imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance, PET, SPECT and CT, or sensors for monitoring vital signs or therapies through measurement of suitable biomarkers); clinical therapy (for example with the study and development of advanced radiotherapy techniques, such as hadrontherapy, neutron capture therapy and oncological hyperthermia); dosimetry and ionizing and non-ionizing radiation protection.
