STP Curriculum Review re-started

Medical Physics

The STP curriculum review, which paused during the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic, restarted in June. The reviews are now underway again, reshaping and reviewing the curriculum along four specialisms, re-aligned to diagnostic radiology and radiation protection, nuclear medicine, radiotherapy physics, and imaging with non-ionising radiation.. An IPEM representative sits on each review panel, and two, one for magnetic resonance and one for ultrasound, on the Imaging with Non-ionising Radiation Panel. Each representative have been provided with the collated views of IPEM members expressed through the surveys as well as relevant workforce data.
