Within the Centre for Medical Physics and Medical Engineering of the University of Novi Sad specialist and doctoral studies have been organized up to the academic 2008/2009. These interdisciplinary studies are unique on the territory of Serbia and in harmony with similar studies in other European countries. They aim at training professional and research personnel for successful team work in medical institutions. Rapid development of medical diagnostics and therapy, as well as medical equipment of advanced technology, require a team work of experts who, apart from being competent in their profession, have to demonstrate knowledge in the field of medicine, physics and engineering. The concept of such multidisciplinary studies enables doctors, physicists and engineers, who decide to work in medical institutions, to use the existing equipment successfully, modernize it rationally and continually work on its improvement. The study program has been designed in such a way as to incorporate the latest scientific and professional findings in the field of medical physics, medical diagnostics and therapy as well as modern technological achievements regarding medical instruments. The curriculum enables a flexible approach to students’ preference for studying particular specialized areas of medical physics through elective subjects and their application in the current medical practice. Programs of individual subjects are in complete harmony with the multidisciplinary character of the studies, since experts from different fields carry out the process of teaching: physicists, mathematicians, doctors, biologists, chemists, engineers and others.
