We teach students at postgraduate and diploma level on courses at the University of Manchester, Salford University,
Kings College London
and the University of Cumbria. We have overseen a number of MSc and PhD projects and collaborate closely with our academic colleagues.

If you are interested in these courses, please contact admissions at the relevant University. We are not involved assessing the suitability of students for these courses and cannot advise.


Training courses

We have developed two short, affordable courses in recent years which have proved very popular with professionals working in Nuclear Medicine and similar fields:

-   Introduction to PET Physics and Further PET Physics (in collaboration with IPEM)

Last course: May 2015  Next course: June 2017 (PET update)

-   Cardiac PET Study Day

Last course: November 2014 Next course: TBC

If you would like to know more about these courses, or other training opportunities, please call 0161 2764820 and ask to speak to the duty physicist, or e-mail us using the contact form here.


Training schemes

Graduate trainees also come to us on placement as part of national healthcare training schemes for

- Radiologists and Nuclear Medicine Physicians

- Cardiologists

- Medical Physicists

- Pharmacists

We are not involved in the admissions process for the training schemes, but are occasionally able to offer advice and short work experience placements for those interested in pursuing careers in these fields. If you would like to speak to someone about careers in radiology, cardiology, medical physics or pharmacy or discuss the possibility of work experience here, please send us a message using the contact form here and we will get back to you if we can.
