Medical physics outreach

Several Radiation Physics and Protection Services (RRPPS) staff members and trainees, along with Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine colleagues, volunteer as STEM Ambassadors to open the eyes of young people to the application of physics to medicine, and the career opportunities this creates.

The outreach team has had many successes over the years, including being runners up for the Special Award for Public Engagement at the 2015 NHS England Healthcare Science Awards.

Team members attend school talks and careers events that involve students trying out interactive stations, each giving a flavour of a different specialism within Medical Physics.
