Radiation Training Courses

The Department of Medical Physics provides many training courses for both internal and external delegates throughout the year.  We have now teamed up with the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust to form the Kent Medical Physics Partnership.  This means we can now offer a wider selection of courses to MTW, EKHUFT and External Delegates.  All of our courses are run by Trust Radiation Protection Advisers or Medical Physicists.  Our IR(ME)R Course for Practitioners and Operators is accredited by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and is also awarded category I CPD credits by the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR).
