Introduction: In spite of development in the medical physics technologies, medical physics curriculum for medical students in Iran has not been updated, while teaching medical physics in many universities around the world has been designed based on applied aims. It seems that modern subject teaching in diagnosis and therapy must be alternated with theoretical subjects of medical physics.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 96 medical physics students of Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences in 2010-2011 with the simple accidental sampling. to obtain view points of medical students about change in medical physics curriculum, the first medical diagnostic imaging methods were taught for five groups of medical students during radiology course for stagers. At the end of each course and after the test, a questioner containing 20 questions was given to obtain their views about change in medical physics curriculum. For quantify answers, they were divided into five levels: intense agree (5), agree (4), without opinion (3), opposite (2) and intense opposite (1).

Results: The average score of students view points about teaching diagnostic imaging was 3.92 so they were almost agreed. The agreement of students about teaching the practical radiology, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine imaging was 4.04 also agreed

Conclusion: the students agreed with incorporating practical physics especially modern medical diagnostic imaging into medical physics curriculum.
