Modern radiation therapy would be inconceivable without physicists. Hand in hand with the medical staff, they plan the radiation treatments individually for each patient and monitor the technical safety of the radiation facilities. Physicists face special challenges in hadron therapy (use of proton or ion beams instead of conventional photon radiation). In this masterclass, students will get an insight into the tasks of physicists in hadron therapy. As with the Masterclasses from particle physics, the experiences will be exchanged in concluding video conferences with international partners. The masterclass on medical physics is organized jointly with colleagues from the Department of Physics at TU Dortmund University and the Department of Physics and Medical Physics from the WPE (Westdeutsches Protonentherapiezentrum Essen) at the Universitätsklinikum Essen.
