The overall aim of this course is to introduce the students to the basic mathematical language required to describe atoms, electrons, and molecules by means of the quantum mechanical description of matter. On
the one hand, the topics covered in the course are required to gain a better understanding of the physical basis of important chemical properties and physical reactions that appear frequently in a medical context. On the other hand, this formalism also allows us to translate quantum mechanical concepts into measurable quantities that can then be used for medical applications, such as positron therapy or magnetic nuclear resonance. In this course, we will therefore cover a number of topics which range from fundamental quantum mechanics to the corresponding applications in medical sciences.

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) awards credits based on the ECTS system. Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
