The Laboratory of Medical Physics was founded within the Medical School of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki back in 1964. It was the first medical physics laboratory in the Greek Higher Education. The mission of the Lab is to excel in training and multi-disciplinary research in a setting that fosters creativity and synergy.
The Laboratory is dedicated to training young doctors in the principles of physics, biomedical technology and their applications in the Health Sciences through the courses of Medical Physics and Biomedical Technology as well as Medical Education in the graduate programmes of the Faculty of Health Sciences. The Lab also participates in the Inter-University postgraduate programme in Medical Physics-Radiophysics, as well as, in postgraduate education of resident doctors in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine.
