Department of Medical Physics


The Department of Medical Physics (former applied physics department) is one of the main departments of the College of Medical and Applied Sciences. In the beginning, the department of applied physics was established in 2014, and the first students’ batch was joined in the academic year of 2014-2015. Based on the community’s desire, the Charmo University's authority decided to replace the applied physics department with the medical physics department in 2018. The first batch of our students graduates in 2022. The graduates will be provided with professional knowledge and scientific techniques to enrich students’ information regarding natural and medical sciences.

Department Mission 

- Providing students with excellent learning opportunities in physics. 
- Offering a robust physics curriculum o engage with the labor market to serve the community.

Department Vision 

- Producing graduates who will have strong and versatile knowledge, technical and analytical skills. 

What is the Physics Program? 

The Medical Physics Department o
ffers a wide variety of theoretical and experimental programs in physics, starting from the fundamental aspects of physics towards the most advanced ones.
In addition, the Department offers a variety of mathematical courses.

Why study Physics? 
Humanity has learned that there is an order in the Universe and that this order can be expressed through physical laws.    Image result for applied physics

The study of physics involves 
an understanding of the everyday phenomena in nature is crucial to earning a better quality of life for our nations and humanity as a whole through the approved application of technologies
. In general, everyone needs an understanding of physics because of the bearing it has on the wide range of issues facing today’s world, such as energy resources, the environment, space exploration, communication, and medicine. 

Graduate skills and Learning outcomes: 

- Knowledge and prediction of physical principles, laws, their interrelationships, and applications to understanding fluid, material, and atmospheric dynamics, and mechanical, electrical, atomic, and subatomic structures and processes. 
- Correlating physics problems with real-life situations. 
- Combining physics with other branches of science to provide applicable methods. 
- Knowledge of principles and methods for curriculum and training design, teaching and instruction for individuals and groups, and the measurement of training effects. 
- Understanding the implications of new information for both current and future problem-solving and decision-making. 
- Using scientific rules and methods to solve problems. 
- Using logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative solutions, conclusions or approaches to problems. 
- Using mathematics to solve problems. Mathematics -Knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, and their applications. 
- Recognize how observation, experiment, and theory work together to continue to expand the frontiers of knowledge of the physical universe. 
- Convert a physical situation articulated to a mathematical formulation, and then analyze it quantitatively. 

Written skills: 

We aim to develop written and oral presentations of work, from the write-ups of first-year practicals and the fourth-year research project. 

The medium of instruction in the Physics Department is in English. 
Studying Duration at Medical Physics Department
The duration of study at the Medical Physics department is eight Academic semesters with full-time study.
Usually, an academic semester (Fall Semester) starts in September to February, and Spring Semester starts February to June at one academic year.
