Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering: working with clinical, academic and industrial colleagues, we improve healthcare by helping people understand about diagnosing and treating patients. We do this through science, engineering and physics.
Who we are
The Department of Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering is a joint venture between the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the University of Liverpool. Set up in 1971, it moved to the newly built Royal Liverpool University Hospital in 1978 where it has remained ever since.
What we do
The department operates a Quality Management System (BS EN ISO 9001 and EN ISO 13485) for all of its activities which include:
Clinical Measurement Services
Research and Development
- Medical instrumentation
- Signal and image processing
- Clinical measurement
- Expert systems
- Safety of Medical Electrical Equipment
- Safety of Medical Electrical Systems
Medical Statistics, Refresher and Intermediate
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Teaching
- MSc Clinical Science (Medical Physics)
- MSc Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering (IPEM accredited)
- Vocational training for STP Healthcare Scientists in both Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering
The department consists of 18 staff offering a range of clinical measurement services to the Royal Liverpool Hospital and other hospital trusts in the North West of England. We are actively involved with research, development and innovation in a number of areas mainly, although not exclusively, in physiological measurement techniques.
The department is also home to the Merseyside Training Consortium which provides education and training to STP Trainee Healthcare Scientists. We currently have 19 trainees on rotation, contributing to clinical services and the research activities of the team as they work towards state registration.
