Hospital radiophysics

The Hospital Radiophysics Teaching Unit is made up of hospital radiophysics specialists and senior technicians specialising in radiotherapy and/or radiodiagnosis.


The Medical Physics and Radiation Protection Department was accredited as a teaching unit in 1995 and is one of the first to receive accreditation in Spain. Some of our former residents now hold important positions in hospitals throughout Spain. Being part of Catalonia’s biggest hospital, with a technology park that is updated constantly, allows us to offer state-of-the-art training in all the areas of the speciality: radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, radiodiagnosis, and radiation protection in healthcare. It is unique, thanks to its extensive experience in advanced radiation oncology techniques in adult and paediatric patients, along with the scope of the radiation protection operations it carries out within the hospital, in both clinical and research facilities. The department has a laboratory where the hospital’s radiation detectors can be calibrated.

Additionally, the Vall d'Hebron Campus offers the possibility of actively participating in national and international research projects and clinical trials linked to its two research institutions, the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology and the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute.
