About Us

Physicists, engineers and technologists play vital roles in delivering our healthcare. The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) is the professional organisation that represents this diverse workforce. We are a charity with more than 4,600 members drawn from healthcare, academia and industry.

What do our members do?

Some help to ensure that patients are correctly diagnosed and safely treated for illnesses such as cancer and stroke through their work on imaging and radiotherapy.  Some develop, maintain and manage medical equipment such as MRI and ultrasound scanners, X-ray machines, drug delivery systems and patient monitors. 

Other members' research and innovation leads to new technologies and methods that improve on existing medical treatments. They provide new solutions that enable people with injuries or long-term conditions to complete everyday tasks.  Find out more about what our members do.
