A 1 semester course, with lectures only. There is a multiple choice credit test at the end of the semester.

During the semester, there are weekly lessons and lectures. Lessons are compulsary, lectures aren’t but they are highly recommended.
This is a 1 semester course, which provides you with a basis to medical physics and an understanding as to how medical machines work. It consists of weekly practicals and 2 lectures.
There is a credit test, at the end of the semester, based on the practical topics and the pass mark is 14/25; you must pass this, to be able to do exam.
Exam: It consists of a written part with multiple choice questions; the pass mark is 14/25. Once you pass this, then you get to pick out 2 questions for the oral part.
