Lecture: Medical Physics 2

Summer Term 2021

Tuesday (16:15–17:45) and Thursday (16:15–17:45)

 

Examination

To receive 6 credit points, passing an oral examination is required which will be conducted via Zoom.us.

Use the same password as for accessing the lecture notes.

You should have received a Zoom.us-Link for the examination via email. Otherwise, please contact us at t.kuder@dkfz.de

You will need a camera and a sheet of paper, where you write down the formulas to be shown via camera.
The examinations will be conducted in German or English (if requested).

Lecture Notes

We recommend that you write your own notes during the lecture since copying from the real or virtual blackboard to paper is known to improve understanding / remembering of the subjects addressed.

The lecture notes will be made available at some point, not necessarily immediately after each lecture:
