Outreach Support  

If you are involved in a career event or open day (e.g. in a school or as part of a hospital-wide event) we can provide you with information material free of charge. 

IPEM members can also borrow outreach equipment from our equipment library, are covered by our Public Liability insurance and we will pay for their local travel expenses.
