How to become a Certified Medical Physicist in the UK?

  • #1
Hello there! I am currently studying Astrophysics (3rd year) in Scotland and would like to shift my premature career path into medical physics. Now, I have few questions that I cannot answer online so I though it would be better to do it here.

Here we go..

My question is how to actually become a medical physicist (MP) in the first place? I have seen that you can apply for a three-year programme called the Scientist Training Programme (STP) which would provide me with a master's degree and sufficient training, but I don't know if I would require any further training to become a clinical scientist. Furthermore, if this training already provides me with Master's degree, what is the point in going to University to study master's?

Let's say I don't make it into STP programme. What other routs would I have to take to become one? would I require master's then? and then apply for training programmes with IPEM? ... Seems like a big loop.. so many questions... Hopefully you guys could help me out on this .

Thank you for your time !
