About IPEM 

Physicists, engineers and technologists play vital roles in delivering our healthcare. IPEM is the professional organisation that represents this workforce. We are a charity with around 4,300 members from healthcare, academia and industry.

Some members help to ensure that patients are correctly diagnosed and safely treated for illnesses such as cancer and stroke.  Some develop, maintain and manage medical equipment such as MRI and ultrasound scanners, X-ray machines, drug delivery systems and patient monitors. 

Other members' research and innovation leads to new technologies and methods that improve on existing medical treatments. They provide new solutions that enable people with injuries or long-term conditions to complete everyday tasks.

   IPEM’s strategic objectives are to:

  • Set and influence standards and best practice  
  • Influence and deliver education, training and continuing professional development  
  • Support and influence research and innovation
  • Strengthen our public engagement and influence decision-makers
  • Influence and engage with national and international bodies.
