The Biomedical Physics B.Sc. four-year program at Laurentian University is focused on the Health Sciences. The program covers areas in Biophysics (e.g. hearing and vision, biophysics of fluids) and medical physics (e.g. medical imaging, radiobiology). Besides these areas which apply physics to the Health Sciences, the students take several core physics courses, namely: modern physics, experimental physics, and electronics. The program also includes interdisciplinary courses. The students get to undertake a 4th year research project with a faculty member. These research projects lead to interactions between the Biomedical Physics students and also with students in other programs offered by the Department of Physics (M.Sc. Physics, B.Sc. Physics, B.Sc. Radiation Therapy programs).
The students can tailor the program to their specific needs by choosing appropriate electives. In fact in the Specialization, out of the 120 credits, there are 42 credits of electives.
