News & Media

Informing our members of the latest developments

IPEM aims to inform its members of relevant developments in the areas of medical physics and biomedical engineering and technology.  We disseminate news to our members via the monthly newsletter, our twitter feed, in the news highlights on our homepage and via our quarterly magazine, Scope.

Are you an IPEM member with news to share?

  • Have you just won a large research grant?
  • Is your department involved in pioneering new medical equipment?
  • Do you need contributers for a survey or audit?
  • Have you been to an inspiring conference or event?

We can publish your news via the newsletter or as a news item online, or perhaps promote it to the press. To submit news for dissemination to IPEM members, or to discuss a possible press story, please contact Joe Wannomo at

IPEM’s member communications also offer advertising opportunities. 

Working with the media

We seek to raise public awareness and understanding of physics and engineering in medicine by helping the media to provide accurate and timely coverage.  We do this by offering the media access to trained experts in the main fields of medical physics and biomedical engineering, who can comment on the latest developments or provide scientific advice or context. We also occssionally issue press releases, offer feature pitches and organise background briefings.
