New MPE recognition route open

A PORTFOLIO-BASED scheme has been launched to recognise new Medical Physics Experts.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has announced the new scheme, which will be run by RPA2000. This follows a successful pilot period, during which a small number of applicants tested how they would provide evidence against the requirements of the MPE syllabus.

With the formal launch of the scheme, the DHSC syllabus, the RPA2000 application form and guidance are now available on the RPA2000 website here, together with information on the process for application. A group of assessors from across the medical physics specialities has been recruited, ready to review applications; and more assessors would be welcome. You can see the role description and application form on the RPA2000 website. 

RPA2000 is keen to remind applicants that this scheme is for new MPEs only. Existing MPEs, whose names are on the temporary list held by RPA2000, will be able to transfer to the final list once the DHSC has approved the transition scheme put to them at the end of 2018 by IPEM, SRP and AURPO.
