For graduates of the physical and engineering sciences seeking a broad view of the field and wishing to specialise in medical physics/engineering. To integrate with training schemes leading to registration as a clinical scientist. To provide a sound knowledge of physical and engineering science applied to medicine.
- The results of project EVETSIN (Department of Health, London, 1998) ranked the King's MSc Medical Engineering & Physics programme as the best in the UK.
- The 2005 National Healthcare Science Award Young Healthcare Scientist of the Year was received by one of our past students. A number of students have also won the prestigious prize from the Annual Conference of the UK Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) (2004, 2006, 2007).
- The department received an inaugural EU Leonardo da Vinci Award for our Medical Physics e-Learning (presented in Maastricht, Netherlands in 2004) and the IOMP Harold Jones Medal for excellence in Medical Physics teaching (presented at Seoul, South Korea in 2006).
- The MEP MSc programme is delivered by more than 30 core lecturers. All of them are Full Members and Fellows of IPEM and many are leading national and international specialists.
