Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy
The Department of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (RADDI) offers research degrees in the fields of Medical Imaging, Radiological and Health Physics, Radiation Biology, and Biophysics. Both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees are offered, in conjunction with the Medical Sciences Graduate Program Committee in the Faculty of Medicine.
The Department also has established interdisciplinary research and teaching links with other departments on campus, notably the Department of Physics, the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Department of Dentistry, the Department of Oncology, and the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine. If desired, the Department of RADDI can offer joint graduate projects, supervision and degrees with these departments. Students from the Faculty of Engineering have also been conjointly supervised.
Students who come from a medical background and wish to concurrently acquire a graduate degree in research are welcomed into a joint M.D.-M.Sc. or M.D.-Ph.D. program, which can be individually tailored to meet the scheduling demands of both programs.
The Department has had consistent success in “placing” their graduate students after completion of their degrees. All have gone on to enjoy either good post-doctoral experiences, or direct placements in clinical or academic careers.
