About

The current University Master's Degree in Biomedical Physics from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid is a continuation of the Master's degree with the same name that has been taught since the 2006/07 academic year. Since then many students, not only from the Complutense University, but from other Spanish and foreign universities have completed these studies that aim to provide an understanding of the applications of Physics, both in Biology and in Medicine.

Our students have received the necessary training to develop a professional, research or academic career in this field. Many of them currently work as Hospital Radiophysicists (after having passed the entrance exam), in Spanish and foreign companies in the sector or have chosen to start a scientific career doing a doctoral thesis.

goals

The fundamental objective of the University Master's Degree in Biomedical Physics is to provide an understanding of the applications of Physics to Biomedical Sciences, providing the basic training necessary to develop a professional, research or academic career in this field.

In this University Master's Degree, all students will acquire the foundations of Biophysics, the processes of interaction of ionizing radiation with matter, and the physical mechanisms and methods of signal analysis on which the devices currently used in Biomedical Sciences are based. .

The Master also contains optional subjects that will allow deepening in Radiophysics and its applications to Medicine, advanced techniques of Biomedical Instrumentation or Biophysics.

Recipients

Graduates and graduates in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, Engineering or related subjects interested in:

  • Develop a research career in the interdisciplinary field of Biophysics.
  • Biomedical instrumentation, whether directed at research or at the company.
  • Develop a professional hospital career related to the European title of Medical Physics Expert or a research career aimed at seeking new applications of Physics in Medicine.

Why study this master?

Professional opportunities: access to doctoral programs. Research in Biophysics. Development of new techniques for diagnosing and treating diseases. Hospital radiophysics. Biomedical instrumentation companies. Biosanitary product companies.

With the aim of better preparing for career opportunities, the University Master's Degree currently has agreements with leading companies in the sector, hospitals and research centers where the Master's Final Project can be carried out.
