Course Description

This taught programme is provided by the School of Medicine at King's College London. Purpose For graduates of the physical and engineering sciences seeking a broad view of the field and wishing to specialise in medical physicsengineering. To integrate with training schemes leading to registration as a clinical scientist. To provide a sound knowledge of physical and engineering science applied to medicine. Professionalvocational linksaccreditations Accredited by the UK Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). Some components approved by the Royal College of Radiology. Programme description - The results of project EVETSIN (Department of Health, London, 1998) ranked the King?s MSc MEP programme as the best in the UK. - The 2005 National Healthcare Science Award Young Healthcare Scientist of the Year was received by one of our past students. A number of students have also won the prestigious first and second prizes from the Annual Conference of the UK Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine-IPEM. - The department received an inaugural EU Leonardo da Vinci Award for our Medical Physics e-Learning (presented in Maastricht, Netherlands in 2004) and the IOMP Harold Jones Medal for excellence in Medical Physics teaching (presented at Seoul, South Korea in 2006). - The MEP MSc programme is delivered by more than 30 core lecturers. All of them are Full Members and Fellows of IPEM and many are leading national and international specialists.
