Travel beyond the city centre to meet physicists in their work environment Medical Physics
The North West is home to some fantastic sites where Physics has been pioneered, developed and applied at the very highest levels. We're offering CUWiP 2023 delegates the choice of three tours on the morning of Friday 24th March 2023. It's a unique opportunity to see physicists in action at one of three leading UK science sites.
During the application process, you will be asked to rank the three visits in order of preference.

The Lovell Telescope has been scanning radio frequencies for over 75 years. It's such an important site that the telescope is a Grade 1 listed building and the whole site became a UNESCO Heritage site in 2019.
This visit will include a guided tour of the site by a local astrophysicst as well as time in the new gallery. Because Jodrell Bank is some distance from Liverpool, expect an early start!
The Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) North West home has been recognised internationally for 50 years. It’s still home to innovations in research and development of particle accelerators, computing big data, nuclear physics and training medical physicists.
This visit will include a tour of the site and an opportunity to speak with professional women and non-binary scientists in a range of professions.
Medical Physics Visit
The University of Liverpool is one of three UK centres that offers the NHS Scientist Training Programme MSc Clinical Science (Medical Physics). On this visit you will meet Medical Physicists trained in Liverpool and now working in one of the most advanced Cancer Centres in the UK.
Whilst we are still arranging the schedule of the tour and visits, know that you will get unique insight into the STP and the life and career of a medical physicist!
