The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) accredits Master's programs in medical physics by means of specific accreditation standard. As this was a brand new course for the 2023/24 academic year, it has been awarded provisional accreditation status (as of September 2023). The course will be subject to further inspection for full accreditation once the first cohort of students have completed. Provided full accreditation is granted, students studying this course in the 2023/24 academic year will be eligible to receive the IPEM accredited degree qualification.

This course is in collaboration with the Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering, Oxford University Hospitals NHS FT.

The MSc leadership team is comprised of an Academic Course Director and a Director of Studies:

  • Dr Daniel McGowan FHEA FIPEM, Course Director and Honorary Senior Clinical Research Fellow in the Department of Oncology; and Head of Research and Education and Consultant Clinical Scientist in the Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. 
  • Dr Tom Whyntie FHEA MIPEM, Director of Studies and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Oncology, advising researcher in MR Linac (imaging physics); and data management consultant (clinical trials, imaging data). 

 This course is offered for the 2024/25 academic year subject to final approval by the University.
