Jonathan Dixon, University of Edinburgh physics graduate and NHS Medical Physicist joined me at my physics career drop-in last week and gave an excellent presentation.
He introduced the different areas you can choose to specialise in and the training route ( working while you qualify). The opportunities for progression and professional are good and appeal to those who want to apply physics in a healthcare context.I have attached his slides with his contact details. medical-physics-jonathan-dixon-nhs-stp_edinburgh
He encouraged students to:
- contact him for informal enquiries
- try and get a visit to an NHS medical physics department or an Open Day
- look at the Careers Service resouces on medical physicist
Open days in Edinburgh at the Western General are regularly advertised each year by our current contact Bill Nailon email:Bill.Nailon@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk
