The pedagogical project of the Professional Master’s Course in Medical Imaging and Medical Physics aims to promote professionals trained to develop technical and scientific knowledge with ethical values to improve the quality of care in Radiology, Medical Imaging, Radiotherapy, and Medical Physics.
The program has 23 (twenty-three) disciplines, 2 (two) mandatory, and 21 (twenty-one) electives that combine subareas of knowledge and application. They consist of theory and practical activities, taught online and in person. Scientific Methodology and Clinical Studies and Topics of Applied Statistics are mandatory and conducted on Virtual Learning Environment (AVA), the Moodle disciplines. Moodle includes programs with predetermined tasks and activities with tutoring providing the essential tools of scientific methodology and statistical bases necessary for the students’ projects. According to the program Regulations, students shall present a dissertation that will be evaluated by an examining committee. Students apply the knowledge acquired in the mandatory disciplines to elaborate their dissertations, works submitted for publication. The optional disciplines support the students in the development of their projects. Although optional, students need to choose these disciplines that will make up the 20 credits required to deposit the dissertation. Regardless of the related topic, the disciplines rely on AVA support with meetings to discuss scientific papers, with students’ presentations, and critical analysis of the formal aspects of the research (rationale, background, and adequacy of the methodology, results, and discussion).
Moreover, to achieve the program’s objectives, the structure relies on tutoring with advisors and collaborators who support the students through:
- · weekly meetings to discuss protocols and cases to search for solutions to general or specific problems detected during the discussions,
- · regular multidisciplinary meetings (weekly and monthly), in which the students present cases, allowing for the improvement of communication skills and providing opportunities for multidisciplinary interaction situations,
- · tutorial activity of active participation in the service, aiming to develop activities focusing on security to conduct clinical cases and manage problems.
This participation of the students with multidisciplinary teams is essential because it allows a broad view of the demand for problems, which indicates opportunities for professional development and structuring in identifying specific and relevant issues to apply the scientific method in a real scenario of practice.
List of program disciplines, considering the last offer:
Scientific methodology and clinical studies. 75-hour mandatory discipline, corresponding to 5 credits, 5 weeks, 6 hours per week of theoretical activity, and 9 hours of study. In this discipline, the student’s project is discussed in detail, comparing the initial project with the project that has changed by applying the knowledge acquired,
Topics of Applied Statistics. 75-hour mandatory discipline, corresponding to 5 credits, 5 weeks, 6 hours per week of theoretical activity, and 9 hours of study.
This discipline addresses the projects discussed on the statistical tests necessary to prove the hypotheses raised.
Support for research lines:
All elective disciplines supporting the lines of research have a total of 150 hours, 10-weeks, 3 hours per week of theoretical activity, 10 hours of practical activity, and 2 hours of study.

The disciplines are consistent with the academic and professional performance of the professors, considering that the program advisors, whether permanent or collaborators are nationally and internationally acknowledged professionals.
The disciplines are under constant analysis and evaluation, with the active participation of the Program Committee. For this reason, a review is being planned to include specific disciplines of Artificial Intelligence for 2021, considering the evolution of the graduate profile.
