The Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP) and the Instituo de Física (Institute of Physics - IF) of USP have signed a partnership for the creation of the Medical Physics course, which was approved by the Universidade de São Paulo during the meeting of the 1006th Session of the University Council, held on March 9, 2021.
The Medical Physics professional must have a solid background in physics, endowed with creativity in the scientific practice and a strong impulse for acting in the hospital, industrial or technological development fields. They should be able to move through different scientific or technological areas, promoting an expanded interdisciplinary vision in connection with other knowledge fields.
Admission to the Medical Physics course (FMUSP + IFUSP) should be open for registration on the next FUVEST entrance exam.
“The actions for the creation of the Medical Physics Course at USP, in the City of São Paulo, started about ten years ago and we are thankful to all the professors at FMUSP and IFUSP who worked hard to make it a reality”, states Prof. Tarcisio Eloy Pessoa de Barros Filho, Director of FMUSP.
