IPEM Approval of Short Courses

IPEM Approved Logo Black

IPEM short course approval is an independent process that recognises and prioritises relevant, high quality external short courses and one day meetings as CPD activity for professionals. 

  • Courses are featured on our website, member news updates, online communities and social media channels - so there is plenty of exposure for your course.
  • We issue a certificate on approval, together with an IPEM logo for use within your promotional activities - you can use the logo on your webpages too.
  • An IPEM approved course provides those attending with recognised CPD activities and is seen by many in the sector as a benchmark of quality.
  • Approval 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 be assessed by IPEM's Course Accreditation Committee and an expert in the course subject area.  

Approval of a CPD course will normally be offered for 3 years and there is a fee for this process which must be paid at the time of application. A purchase order must be included with the application.

Before completing your application, read the guidance here

The 2024 application fee is £425 per course and VAT is not payable. 

Take a look at the current approved courses here.

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.
