      The study programme Medical Biophysics is an interdisciplinary branch of science which employs virtually all biological fields and is focused on scientific study and independent research activities in interdisciplinary settings, from natural science up to clinical medical work. This branch of science originated from the need to separate medical applications observing interactions of physical fields and radiation with a living organism from the bulk of technological and biological disciplines.
      The goal of the study of Medical Biophysics is understanding of basic biological processes for development in innovative methods and/or devices for clinical application in diagnosis and therapy. Doctorands, further to their Masters education, are recruited for scientific and research projects at the training institutions and motivated by their Supervising Tutors to solve scientific and research problems of their own. In keeping with the recent developments, the programme Medical Biophysics is also focused on interconnection of the studies with the needs of clinical practice.
      Study program without specialization.

      The admission examination is held in the form of interview before a board and it checks the student’s capacity for scientific work in the given field and his/her capacity to complete the studies. Criteria evaluated by the board are following:
      a) Quality of the topic and project of the dissertation thesis and the way of its presentation, proposal of the supervising tutor/consultant and financial coverage of the project – max. 30 points.
      b) Previous scientific activity in this field (publications, presentation in a Student Scientific Conference, etc.) – max. 20 points.
      c) Knowledge of this field in the extent of the master study – max. 50 points.
      Required minimum score for acceptance: 60 points.

      Doctoral (Ph.D.) study programme Medical biophysics is an interdisciplinary branch making use of the cooperation within the framework of basic science research in biology and medical clinical practice. Student education is focused on the relation between physics and medicine. Attention is paid to the knowledge of diagnostic and therapeutic methods, studies of physical processes on biological membranes, mathematical modelling of biological processes, biomechanics, biosignals, and also to the biophysical effects of electromagnetic radiation.
