Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups

Or SIGs as they are known, facilitate discussions, conferences and publications and lead on activity across a number of distinct areas of scientific or engineering endeavour. SIGs work across diverse areas of medical physics and clinical engineering and play a vital role in IPEM’s work by:

  • Planning and delivering a programme of scientific conferences and webinars
  • Producing publications such as guidance notes
  • Helping to shape our science strategy by monitoring the development and impact of new technology
  • Participation in consultations about policy, relevant legislation and standards
  • Supporting and encouraging relevant educational programmes
  • Communicating and discussing their work in the wider Communities of Interest

To join one of these SIGs you need to be a member and apply.

If you want to get in touch with the Chairs of the SIG you can find them on the Community of Interest pages or get in touch with Eva McClean at the National Office.

In addition to the 10 Special Interest Groups we have two General Interest Groups that span the entire profession - Environmental Sustainability and AI.


Get involved – Professional Communities of Interest 

All of our members and other interested professionals can join the conversations taking in their respective professional forums - our Communities of Interest

We encourage everyone to participate: You can suggest conference and publications topics, access library resources, ask questions, connect, initiate discussions or comment on posts.

You can join any of these professional communities at any time.
