The primary goal of the Honors Specialization modules in Medical Biophysics is to develop and strengthen the student's ability to apply mathematical and physical principles in the study of biological phenomena. The focus of most of the modules relates to medical sciences. Example theme areas include: blood flow biomechanics in large blood vessels and in the microcirculation; medical imaging principles and applications in image guided surgery; survival in physical extremes; radiobiology, radiation therapy and tumor metastasis; orthopedic and artificial joint biomechanics.
Students completing either an Honors Specialization in Medical Biophysics (Medical Science Concentration) or Medical Biophysics (Clinical Physics Concentration) will graduate with a BMSc (Honors) degree. Students completing either an Honors Specialization in Medical Biophysics (Physical Science Concentration) or Medical Biophysics (Biological Science Concentration) will graduate with a BSc (Honors) degree.
