I just graduated recently with a 2:1 in Mathematics and am thinking of studying a Masters course in Medical Physics in 2008. I got a welcoming response from Aberdeen University (http://www.biomed.abdn.ac.uk/Courses/medphys.html) and am thinking of studying there. However, I'm trying to think of the job prospects once completing the course. I'd really like to work for NHS Scotland but the training scheme is difficult to get into. There are very few vacancies. Does anyone have experience of finishing a masters course in Medical Physics and then find it difficult to get work? I'm therefore considering other possible career options that degree at Aberdeen University has to offer but there doesn't seem to be many. Of course, there is academia but I can't see myself studying for a PhD and becoming a lecturer. Do you think I could find employment within nuclear energy or radiation protection using that degree? Or should I look somewhere else for a course that gives more career choices? I'd love to here any experience folk have in doing a course in medical physics.
