Medical Physics is an extremely varied discipline with a wide range of applications concerned with technology in medicine. Principally funded by the National Health Service, Medical Physics has a large service workload, but also an increasing amount of academic research, both through contracts and postgraduate student projects. Indeed, many of the projects arise directly from exciting developments in the clinical service and we aim to select these where possible.
