At university studying for an undergraduate degree?
There are many options from here:
• You could train as a Clinical Scientist through
- Health Education England's Scientists Training Programme
- Continuing with an MSc in Medical Physics or Clinical/Biomedical engineering
• Information about the training scheme in Scotland can be found here
• Visit the medical physics / engineering department during an open day at your local hospitals
• Consider work experience or volunteering in a hospital or a patient facing role. Even if not exactly related to medical physics or engineering experience in a hospital is useful. Useful for getting a job but also useful for you as you might not like a hospital environment!
• Check our Industry pages if you are considering working in the Healthcare technologies industry. There is a database of all UK companies working in the medical technologies sector. If you find a suitable one why not contact them for placements or job opportunities?
• Check our academic pages if you are considering doing a PhD and staying in academia doing research in the field.
