The UCL Department of Medical Physics & Bioengineering will be running a University of London Taster Course entitled Bringing Physics to Life: An Introduction to Medical Physics on Thursday July 4, 2013. The event is free of charge and will run from 10:00 until 16:00, with lunch provided. Students will be given an overview of the role played by medical physicists and bioengineers in the development of new technologies for solving medical problems and improving healthcare. A series of demonstrations of modern hospital and medical research equipment will be given. The taster course is open to all students pursuing A’level Physics and A’level Maths. It is particularly suitable for students considering a university in degree in physics or engineering. More details about University of London Taster Courses are available here, including how to apply.
On Thursday 27 June 2013, we will take part in the UCL Open day for prospective undergraduate students. Students will be invited to visit the Department for demonstrations of Medical Physics equipment and to learn about studying Medical Physics at UCL. Details will be posted here as they become available. Alternatively, see UCL's guided tours.
We will be holding a Masterclass on the evening of 3 July 2013. The Masterclass is entitled "Bringing Science to Life".
We were at the UCL Intercalated Student Fayre on Wednesday January 19, 2011. You will be able to find out about the Medical Physics IBSc degree, and lecturing staff and current students will be available to talk to prospective students interested in the course. For more information, contact the intercalated tutor.
