Biomedical physics

Prospects of graduates

Graduates of the Bachelor studies are able to perform the profession of biomedical physicist. This includes a wide spectrum of knowledge from all areas of physical scientific disciplines, mathematics and informatic scientific fields, knowledge from the area of theoretical medicine, biology, chemistry and border disciplines.

The core of knowledge, abilities and skills is based on the requirements on the abilities of a graduate:

understanding basic physical, chemical and biological principles of organisation of living systems,

solving of theoretical problems based on corresponding mathematic methods,

setting and using experimental equipment, realising and evaluating experiments,

proposing and realising computer simulations of physical and biomedical phenomena, knowing at least one programmeming language,

applying physical and medical knowledge in solutions of issues of social praxis and the ability to communicate with experts from other areas of science and technology,

being able to apply physical laws to the phenomena of everyday life, to understand them correctly and measure on their basis related physical figures, evaluate these statistics, process and interpret them,

spreading physical and biomedical knowledge on a comprehensible basis among amateur public,

working with basic software and in the area of statistical data processing, table  processors, processing of texts, hypertexts, graphic presentation and result publication,

processing, publishing and presenting with other methods the results of professional activity, knowing standard computer office software equipment,

communicating in foreign language,

understanding basic social, economic and legal contexts,

respecting basic principles of humanity, ethics and principles of sustainable development for all,

ability to learn independently, use available information sources and participate in permanent education.

Graduates are prepared for successful studies at the Master's degree of university education.

Applicants to the studies of informatics and expected to have a basic knowledge of a programmeming language. Knowledge of at least one world language is welcome. Applicants to study of economic and financial mathematics and managerial mathematics are expected to have a good knowledge of the English language (some lectures are in this language).

Applicants may apply on one application form to study a maximum of three study programmes. Applicants indicating more than one study programme will be able to take entrance exams for all subjects corresponding with the selected programmes in consideration. If an applicant fulfils the conditions of admission to several study programme, he/she will be admitted to that one for which he/she applied with highest priority. We recommend to use this possibility and to indicate alternative study programmes on the second and third place. These will not influence admitting to the programme indicated with a higher priority and may be useful as a substitute solution especially in case of popular study programmes. Teaching field is to be indicated by the applicant for the combination of teaching subjects (e.g. mathematics and physics).

The faculty will send to the signed up applicants instructions regarding the admission procedure no later than 30 days ahead of the entrance exam. If an applicant can not take the entrance exam on the regular date due to colliding entrance exam at another faculty, he/she can request a change of the exam date no later than on June 1, 2010. if the applicant indicates more programmes on the application form, he/she will take the entrance exam in all subjects corresponding with the given programmes in consideration. If he/she fulfils conditions of admission to more programme, he/she will be admitted to that one which is indicated with highest priority. The entrance exam from biology, as well as the practical exam from physical education is performed in cooperation with other faculties of the Comenius University (Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Physical Education and Sports, Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Comenius University). The date of the practical (atitude) exam from physical education will be set by the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports of the Comenius University.
