  • Learning Outcomes

    After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

    • be oriented in the given topic, collect relevant data and prepare them for statistical processing and interpretation
    • evaluate the current trends in radiology, nuclear medicine and biophysics / medical physics in which he prepares his dissertation work, as well as in the whole field of imaging / medical physics
    • to transfer the experience gained from the field / expertise in the form of pedagogical activities, lectures and publications
    • compile and compile the data obtained, to interpret the results achieved, to present their findings and to advocate them on the relevant forum
    • lead research work independently
    • combine the theoretical knowledge of medical physics in practical applications of imaging methods
    • use the theoretical foundations obtained within the subject for radiation protection of patients and staff
    • introduce new practices into clinical practice, especially with regard to the use of modern diagnostic methods
  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    Graduates should be prepared primarily for further scientific careers in academic institutions, but also for potential employers in research facilities, health care facilities, and as lecturers.

  • Practical Training

    Practical experience is obtained through practical work performed by the research group the student belongs to, and further also inside the shared infrastructure. For students specialised in clinical studies, the practical training takes place in the partner medical facilities (The Faculty Hospital in Brno)

  • Goals of Theses

    The standards for the doctoral thesis at the Faculty of Medicine of the MU are regulated by the Dean's directive no. 3/2013 "The instructions regarding the formal requirements regarding the doctoral thesis composed at the Faculty of Medicine of the MU"
