Department of Physics, Mathematics and Biophysics

The studies and scientific research works carried out in the Department of Physics, Mathematics and Biophysics belong to the disciplines of fundamental sciences, which form the university worldview. The staff of the department adapted these disciplines to medical programmes and adapted them to the needs of all university faculties. Currently, along with medical and applied physics studies, the department teaches the basics of advanced mathematics, methods of mathematical statistics and the basics of computer science. These subjects are extremely relevant today, so they are taught to students of all five faculties (medicine, odontology, pharmacy, public health and nursing). A research introductory course is taught to third-year medical faculty students. In addition, the department teaches a special course for doctoral students in the field of biomedical sciences – “Mathematical Statistics and Informatics in Biomedicine”. Statistical evaluation of research data using various statistical analysis packages is an extremely relevant issue in today’s medical science. The course of mathematical statistics and computing is also taught to students of the medical training department.

The staff of the department closely cooperates not only with our country’s higher education institutions (KTU, VDU and VU), but also with foreign universities (the University of Michigan in the USA, Oslo Institute of Physiology in Norway, University of Rennes).
