What our members say...

IPEM Members

IPEM is the only body that represents Medical Physicists and Clinical Engineering in the UK. There is no alternative for promoting the professions. I enjoy the opportunities IPEM gives me to become involved in things that, otherwise, I would not have a chance to do.

I like the networking element and value the short training courses and members discount on those.

IPEM excels both as a professional body, and in promoting science and engineering in medicine.

I recommend joining IPEM to all colleagues working in medical research that wish to enhance their participation in the field.

Why join us?

If you would like to apply for IPEM membership, please ensure that you submit your application electronically as all staff are currently working remotely, due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
