MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES

Only individuals with patient related experience or those whose work directly relates to the safety
and health of the public are eligible for membership of the College.

There are two Categories of Membership

  • Members must have spent at least three years, following completion of Training, working as a physicist in medicine with responsibility for patient care and demonstrated the competencies expected of a trained physicist in medicine.

  • Fellows must have spent at least seven years working post-training as a physicist or graduate engineer in medicine with responsibility for patient care and demonstrated the competencies expected of a trained physical scientist in medicine

There are three specialist areas. Each member may register for one specialist area initially. After 5 years of full membership a second specialist area may be added, with evidence that the member has attained suitable competence in the additional area.
