A welcome message by Prof Jem Hebden, Head of Department at UCL Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.

Our academic research includes medical imaging, physiological monitoring, radiotherapy and biomedical engineering. Ours is a joint department with Medical Physics in the UCLH NHS Trust, and our staff work side by side with hospital physicists, clinical doctors and other health professionals, enabling us to provide our students with a fully connected curriculum. We offer a range of accredited BSc, MSc, MRes and PhD degrees and Postgraduate Diplomas in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. We are a friendly, diverse department. We know all of our students by name, and you'll be taught in small, interactive classes by the leading experts in their field.
