I'd like to start by thanking everyone on this forum. I came here back in 2010 looking for advice on whether or not I should pursue a degree in physics as a mature student. I'm now 27 and only a few months away from graduating and can honestly say it was the best decision of my life. The encouragement and academic guidance I've received from this community over the years has been invaluable, so thank you. Medical physics is a field I've asked about before. I've since then taken a class on the subject so I feel even more confident that it's something I'd like to do. I have a few questions for anyone who works in this field or knows a bit about it. 1) I live in the UK. As far as I can tell, the only training programme for becoming a medical physicist in the UK is the NHS Scientist Training Programme, but they only accept a handful of students each year. Is that really the only entry route? If I only posses an undergraduate physics degree, is there no other way for me to become a medical physicist? 2) Is it possible for me enter a training programme in another country with only a physics degree? If so, can you please give me some examples of where to look? 3) I'm considering an IPEM (The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine) accredited masters degree in medical physics. Would that significantly increase my chances of employment? What about a PhD? 4) If I live in the UK and become a medical physicist registered with IPEM, how likely would it be that I'd be able to find employment abroad? How would my IPEM accreditation compare with the official accreditation from governing bodies in other countries like USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia? Are they roughly viewed as equal? 5) To those in the field - would you still recommend this career? Or is it next to impossible to find employment? I appreciate any help or advice. Medical physics seems an interesting and rewarding career, but ideally I don't want to be 'stuck' in the UK.
