Students and Postgraduates - Hospital Open Days


Every year in January and February hospitals which are involved in the STP training (England) and Clinical Scientist Training in Scotland hold open days for potential trainees.  They are free to attend but you need to book a place in advance.  Attending one of these events will give you a chance to meet some other trainees and have a look around a medical physics or engineering department (depends on the hospital)- so well worth doing if you are considering applying for the training programme. 

Some dates are already available, but more will follow:-

Manchester: 18 December 2018 - Fully Booked

Academic Practice : A handbook for physicists and Engineers involved in biomedical research and teaching

This practical 'how to' handbook is principally aimed at current and prospective university staff and PhD students. It covers:

  • the academic career from PhD student to post-retirement
  • practical issues in research, such as how to write a PhD thesis and project management
  • research funding in universities, in the NHS and industry
  • teaching.

    With an approach of 'What I would like to have been told when I started in this area', this book takes a realistic view of academic life, the pitfalls as well as the prizes. For more information about how to order this book please click here.
