ICTP 2020 Masters in Medical Physics Scholarship
Application deadline: May 17, 2020.
ICTP is now accepting applications for its Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics (MMP) programme. The MMP is a two-year advanced training programme run jointly by ICTP and the University of Trieste. The programme is designed to provide young, promising graduates of physics or related fields (mainly from developing countries) with postgraduate theoretical and clinical training so that they may be recognised as clinical medical physicists in their home countries.
The programme comprises a year of basic and advanced courses (taught in English) prepared with the assistance of experts from ICTP’s UN partner the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This is followed by a year of professional clinical training in a medical physics department of a hospital in the programme’s training network.
Scholarships are available for candidates from developing countries.
The Master’s Programme has been accredited by the International Organisation for Medical Physics (IOMP).
- The minimum qualification for applicants is a degree equivalent to an MSc in physics or related fields.
- Open to young (generally below 30 years of age) qualified graduates from countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA.
- Candidates who have received their degree outside Italy must obtain the “Dichiarazione di valore” from the Italian Embassy in their country, testifying that their curriculum studiorum is equivalent to the Italian “Laurea specialistica”. Curriculum studiorum should comprise 12 years of primary and secondary school and a University degree equivalent to the Italian “Laurea specialistica” – a university study allowing to enter in a PhD programme in her/his Country.
