Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM)
The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) is a professional association with around 5,200 members who are physicists, engineers and technologists working with applications of physics and engineering applied to medicine and biology. Our members work in hospitals, academia and industry, and IPEM has a unique role in linking the three areas.
As a charity, IPEM’s aim is to advance the application of physics and engineering to medicine for the public
benefit and to advance public education in this field. We do so by supporting and publishing research, and
supporting the dissemination of knowledge and innovation through project funding and scientific meetings; and by setting standards for education, training and continuing professional development for healthcare scientists and clinical engineers. We also produce information for the public about the role of physicists and engineers in their healthcare services. Benefits of membership include a free CPD scheme, discounts on journals, reports and conference fees, bursaries and prizes, access to job vacancies, and a wide support network at every stage of career progression.
