The University of Denver's minor in medical physics is ideal for students considering medical, dental or other bio-related graduate schools or health-related careers in the sciences and engineering.

After completing a year of introductory physics, students are required to complete the following two courses:

  • Physics of the Body, which relies on basic physics principles to promote an understanding of the function of the body's various organ systems;
  • Medical Imaging Physics, which explores common diagnostic techniques used in medicine, such as ultrasound, x-rays, and MRI, and their interaction with the human body.
