McGill University Medical Physics Unit

The Medical Physics Unit (MPU) is an academic unit within McGill University's Faculty of Medicine and a division within the Department of Oncology. The activities of the MPU encompass Medical Physics education, research and clinical consultation hosted at the MUHCJewish General Hospital (JGH) and the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI). The main site of the MPU is colocated with the MUHC Department of Medical Physics at the MUHC which provides clinical service to the Department of Radiation Oncology. This mixed clinical-academic setup where education, training and research & development is intertwined with clinical service provides a fertile breeding ground for exciting new research.
