All scientific and training meetings organised by IPEM will have content that members and some allied professionals will find valuable as a contribution to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activity. In addition, meetings IPEM organises in partnership with other organisations will also be relevant to the CPD plans of IPEM members.
IPEM offers an approval process for other external short courses and one day meetings as CPD activity for professionals. Approval is an independent audit process that grants recognition by IPEM, as the UK professional body for physics and engineering in medicine, of courses which have a programme of relevant teaching activities that are suitable to meet the published aims and objectives.
Guidance on submitting an application can be found here. Course organisers are invited to submit an application form which will then be scrutinised by a member of IPEM's Course Accreditation Committee and an expert in the subject. If approved, organisers can use the IPEM 'CPD Approved' logo on their course publicity material.
Approval of a CPD course will normally be offered for 3 years and there is an application fee (please contact the IPEM office for details on fees). A purchase order must be included with the application.
When applying to renew approval for a course currently approved by IPEM, please complete the renewal form and submit this to IPEM with a purchase order no less than six weeks prior to the expiry of approval.
In order to maintain high standards, IPEM will ask for feedback from course participants during this approval period.
