Courses of Interest

e-IRMER - Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations

e-IRMER is an interactive online training resource supporting the training of NHS healthcare professionals in the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2000 (amended 2006) (IR(ME)R).

Delivered in partnership with IPEM, e-IRMER provides easy access to learning materials, and through formative and summative assessments, allows the learner to both develop competence and demonstrate compliance with the regulatory requirements of the IR(ME)R
Access is only available using a valid NHS email address.          

A Course in Radiotherapy Physics      
12 – 16 January 2021
Imaging for Radiotherapy, Radiation Dosimetry Treatment Planning,
and Patient Specific Dosimetry. (Sutton Site)


This course provides a practical and theoretical background to
Radiotherapy with its main focus on Radiotherapy Physics aspects.
The curriculum covers many aspects and each course includes
a workshop session on Saturday,
Included in the full cost of the course
are a set of lecture notes, a link to the presentations, lunches, refreshments, cheese & wine and a course meal in a local restaurant.

A Practical and Theoretical Course in Radiotherapy Physics, comprising two, 4 to 5 day courses are held annually at the Royal Marsden NHS Trust. 

There are 4 days of lectures and a hands-on practical session on each course, delivered by experts in the field.

The course is designed primarily for radiotherapy physicists, but very relevant for other oncology professionals.  

For more information, please visit

 Next course dates:

2-5 March 2021: Radiobiology, Accelerator Design and Quality Assurance, Brachytherapy & Radiotherapy Verification Imaging (virtual) with workshops planned at the end of Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.

Discounted to reflect a virtual course.

9-13 November 2021: Radiation Dosimetry, Imaging for Radiotherapy, Treatment Planning and Patient Specific Dosimetry (Sutton site hopefully) with workshops on Saturday morning.

If for any reason, November 2021 changes to a virtual course, a part refund will be offered to reflect this change.

Radionuclide Calibrator e-Learning Programme

Produced by the National Physical Laboratory The Radionuclide Calibrator e-Learning Course has been designed to support the effective use of radionuclide calibrators, in a clinical setting. It delivers the right skills and strategies when operating them, and provides a methodological approach when implementing quality assurance tasks, and identifying sources of uncertainty.

This course is aimed at:

  • Medical physicists working in nuclear medicine
  • Nuclear medicine technologists and practitioners
  • Trainees on the NHS PTP or STP training programmes
  • Radiopharmacists and; those working in radiopharmacies

The Institute of Cancer Research Various Courses  

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years.

They also run various courses on Radioactive Waste Advisers Training, Physics of Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection Training  a list of these, along with the registration form, can be found on their website here.



Image Guided & Adaptive Radiotherapy in Clinical Practice Course 2022
Date: Thursday 3rd Saturday 5th February 2022
 The Education and Conference Centre, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK


This 3-day course held in collaboration with The Institute of Cancer Research, is designed to help clinicians, physicists and radiographers develop programmes for the implementation of image guided radiotherapy.

The course has been awarded 19 RCR Category I CPD credits under The Royal College of Radiologists CPD scheme.

The curriculum covers many practical aspects and includes hands-on experience of volume and OAR localisation and definition, contouring, planning techniques, immobilization and patient set up image verification. Plus guidance for developing protocols for outlining, and sessions on QA and imaging, covering pre-treatment and on treatment procedures - from the TPS to the linac and patient.

We recommend a team of oncologist, physicist and radiographer from the same centre attend together.

Included in the cost of the course is a set of lecture notes, an electronic link of the presentations, lunches, refreshments a cheese & wine evening and a course evening meal ( sponsored by the manufacturers).
