Description

Majors:

  • Clinical dosimetry
  • Electroradiology

Characteristics of the programme:

Full-time first-cycle studies in medical physics last 7 semesters, and finish with the completion of a diploma thesis and obtaining the title of an engineer of medical physics in one of the majors, i.e. dosimetry or electroradiology. After the second and third year of study, students undergo compulsory internships in health care facilities. The curriculum  includes a block of mathematical and physical subjects with laboratories and blocks of subjects related to the programme and major in the fields of medicine and biology. Students will learn physical methods used in biology and medicine, both in diagnostic processes and therapy, as well as the basics of materials engineering in medicine and the construction of medical equipment and its application. Classes are conducted by employees of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Institute of Physics of the University of Silesia, as well as the Medical University of Silesia and the Maria Skłodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology, Branch in Gliwice.

An important task of education in medical physics is to prepare physicists to work in interdisciplinary teams (which are composed of doctors, biologists, chemists and technicians) and to perform the role of experts in the field of quality management systems in the domains related to medical physics, management systems, technical quality of imaging procedures and preparation and operation of non-standard procedures. The graduates are prepared to independently develop skills and continue learning at the second-cycle studies in medical physics and related programmes.

Career prospects (profile of the graduate):

First-cycle studies in medical physics are aimed to prepare young people for work in professions such as a medical engineer, electroradiology technician at the highest possible level.

The graduate of clinical dosimetry will be able to work in medical institutions (clinics, hospitals), development and research facilities, entities providing dosimetric services and radiological protection, as well as in the installation and distribution of medical equipment.

The graduate of electroradiology is prepared to operate radiological, radiotherapeutic and electromedical equipment. They will be able to work in radiotherapy facilities, in the departments of radiology or nuclear medicine, laboratories of EEG, EMG, ECG, audiology, clinical physiology and of radiological protection inspection. They have the skills and qualifications to work as an electroradiology technician.

Admissions criteria for candidates with "new" Polish maturity exam (issued after 2005)

For candidates with NEW MATURA EXAM

Admission to studies is based on secondary school-leaving grades – the results of the below-indicated subjects taken in the written part of Matura exam are taken into consideration:

Mathematics

 

Better of the following results:

- basic level x 1

or

- advanced level x 2

Physics and Astronomy

 

Better of the following results:

- basic level x 1

or

- advanced level x 2

Biology

 

Better of the following results:

- basic level x 1

or

- advanced level x 2

weight a = 40%

weight b = 40%

weight e = 20%

Method of calculating points (candidate’s result):

WK = a x M + b x F + c x B

where:

WK — candidate’s result,

M – result in mathematics at the basic or advanced level,

F – result in physics and astronomy at the basic or advanced level (F=0 when the candidate did not take an exam in physics or astronomy),

F – result in biology at the basic or advanced level (B=0 when the candidate did not take an exam in biology).

Comments:    

  • Admission to studies is decided by means of the place on the ranking list, created on the basis of the candidate’s result (WK).
  • If the number of candidates does not exceed the determined limit of places, all candidates with a result higher than 0 will be admitted.
  • If the candidate took a specific subject in Matura exam at both levels, the result in the level which will be more favourable for the candidate after multiplying by the relevant weight and conversion rate will be taken into account.
  • If the candidate did not take a specific subject in Matura exam, they will receive zero points in this subject, but they can still join the admission process, as long as their result in at least one subject (mathematics, physics and astronomy, biology) on the secondary school-leaving certificate is higher than 0%.

A study candidate is obliged to submit a relevant medical certificate confirming the lack of medical contraindications to take up studies in this degree programme.

Admissions criteria for candidates with "old" Polish maturity exam (issued before 2005)

For candidates with OLD MATURA EXAM (taken until 2004 inclusive):

The grades (results) on the Matura exam achieved by the candidates who took Matura exam until 2004 (the so-called old Matura exam) are converted proportionally into the new Matura exam grade scale in the following way:

Matura exam until 1991

(grade in per cent)

Matura exam after 1991

(grade in per cent)

6 — 100 %

5 — 100%

5 — 90%

4 — 85 %

4 — 75 %

3 — 40%  

3 — 50 %

2 — 30 %

Points in the following subjects are taken into account: mathematics, physics or physics and astronomy, biology taken by the candidate in writing (if the exam was written) or orally (no written exam) on the secondary school-leaving certificate and in the certificate issued by OKE (Regional Examinations Board).

After converting grades into points, the candidate’s result (WK) will be calculated as described in the point concerning the new Matura exam.

Note:

  • If the exam level (basic or advanced) was not specified on the secondary school-leaving certificate for a selected subject, the default level is basic. 

A study candidate is obliged to submit a relevant medical certificate confirming the lack of medical contraindications to take up studies in this degree programme.

International Baccalaureate

  • The candidate who obtained the International Baccalaureate diploma, issued by the International Baccalaureat Organization based in Geneva, are subject to the same admission rules as holders of “new” Polish maturity exam. The results on the diploma of International Baccalaureate are calculated according to the following indicators:

IB Diploma

In case the candidate does not submit the International Baccalaureate diploma, for the sake of qualification, the candidate is obliged to submit the certificate about the IB result issued by the appropriate institution and present the IB diploma immediately after its reception.

NOTE: If the admissions criteria for the programme assume additional entrance exams for the holders of “new” Polish maturity exams, the following factors are concerned during the qualification: result from IB diploma calculated according to the scale above and the results of the additional entrance exam.

European Baccalaureate

The candidate who obtained the European Baccalaureate diploma, issued by European Schools in accordance to the Luxemburg Convention of 21 June 1994 about the European School status, are subject to the same admission rules as holders of “new” Polish maturity exam. The results on the diploma of European Baccalaureate are treated as results of the extended “new” Polish maturity exams and are calculated according to the following indicators:

In case the candidate does not submit the European Baccalaureate diploma, for the sake of qualification, the candidate is obliged to submit the certificate about the EB result issued by the appropriate institution and present the EB diploma immediately after its reception.

NOTE: If the admissions criteria for the programme assume additional entrance exams for the holders of “new” Polish maturity exams, the following factors are concerned during the qualification: result from EB diploma calculated according to the scale above and the results of the additional entrance exam.

Secondary education certificate, or equivalent, obtained outside of Poland

The candidate who has obtained the secondary school graduation certificate (or another document) issued outside Poland may apply for studies. The document has to entitle the holder to undertaking Bachelor studies in the country in which the document was issued.

For candidates which are Polish citizens or apply for studies on the same rules as Polish citizens, the admission procedures defined in the programme’s description apply.

Foreign candidates applying for studies on other basis (tuition-paying, tuition-free, scholarships) are accepted for studies under regulations other than noted in the admission criteria. 

If programme’s admission criteria require mark in Polish language :
The candidates applying as Polish citizens or on the same rules as Polish, which finished secondary education outside Poland, will have the mark of that country’s language taken into account instead of Polish language mark.

In the case of candidates who have a secondary school-leaving certificate or other document authorising them to take up 1st cycle studies or long-cycle studies issued abroad, the grades in the document authorising them to take up studies in the country of document issue are taken into consideration. Additionally, WKR may take into consideration the grades in external exams in the countries where such exams are conducted, e.g.: result of CT exam in the case of Belarus, result of EGE exam in the case of Russia, and result of ZNO exam in the case of Ukraine. The results of these exams shall be regarded as equivalent to Polish advanced Matura exam.

Note: If programme’s admission criteria under “new” Polish maturity exam include additional entrance exams the results of BOTH entrance exam and secondary school graduation certificate are considered.
