The majority of technologists jobs now require a general degree in physics or engineering. After completing this you can then apply for a job at a hospital. The majority of hospital based jobs will include further post-graduate training and you will gain more qualifications whilst working. Either through joining the IPEM Technologists Training Scheme or through completing a distance learning degree. Many hospitals prefer trainees to be at least 18 and mature entrants are often welcome.
Details are available from hospital personnel departments, although smaller hospitals may not employ or train junior clinical technologists. Vacancies, especially lower grades, are often advertised in job centres and local papers. Higher grade jobs are increasingly advertised nationally, for example through IPEM's jobs online or via the NHS Jobs website.
