IPEM Approval of Short Courses


We offer an approval process for 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.

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 a fee for this process which must be paid to the IPEM office in advance of the accreditation visit.  For current approval fees, please contact the IPEM training department. A purchase order must be included with the application. 

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.

We frequently post updates and dates for your diary in the newsletter and through IPEM’s social media, please follow @ipemnews to ensure you don’t miss an update.
