    I have a BSc in Biomedical Science and currently working as a biomedical scientist in a histology lab. But i want to work in reproductive medicine and doing the STP would help find the right job aswell as attaining an MSc.

    So could anyone advise me on what to do?!

    Cheers

    Hi all,

    I've just been offered a place for Medical physics up in Liverpool It's not one of the places I was originally thinking of considering, but now I've been offered it I think I will. I was just wondering if anyone knows much about the hospital up there, and the city itself, as I've never been up to Liverpool before.

    Thanks

    Hello, Med Phys Liverpool, I'm Med Phys Liverpool too.

    And to answer your previous post, the city of Liverpool is lovely, it has a good night life and a culture to speak of. The hospital is adjacent to the university campus, meaning initially everything is nice and close together.

    The Duncan building - where we will be spending a lot of time - is not pretty, its a grim 1970s concrete monolith that will be demolished over the coming few years.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi thank you for the reply

    I've emailed Prof. Fisher and he has said I can organise a visit to look round the department, Hopefully I'll get the chance to look at the Uni and the Hospital.

    Where in Liverpool will you be looking to live? I've spoken to a couple of people who have warned me off a couple of areas and recommend some, but trying to get as many opinions as I can before I decide.

    Also have you heard much about starting dates etc?

    Thanks

    HI Guys,

    I've decided to accept the Micro position at The Royal Free.

    Is anyone else based here? It would be great to hear from people as I am relocating from West Yorkshire and don't know anyone

    I'm also confused by the masters online application. Did anyone else have to provide references again? and submit a personal statement? Surely we have already got a place on the course so why would we need to provide this all again. I have emailed but not heard back as of yet. I'm getting worried that it starts in a month and i've still not submitted yet as i'm waiting for references.

    This really is the most scary/stressful thing i've ever done. I wish we could be given more information and guidance about what is going on.:confused:

    Some information for anyone who may need it.

    I am doing Medical Physics at Leeds Teaching Hospital with my part time degree at Kings College London.

    My trust asked me to provide two references, birth certificate, passport, driving licence, two utility bills, national insurance card and degree transcripts. I also asked KCL who said that I had to provide two references and complete the personal statement - but that this can be similar to what I put on the STP online application.

    Hope that helps for anyone.

    Still not heard from my Trust. I sent an email last Wednesday that hasn't been replied to - I must admit I am a little envious of you all complaining about your application forms!

    It's not Berkshire by any chance? I'm having a dreadful time trying to sort out my place there.

    I think the best thing to do is try to phone them. If you ring the main switch board they should be able to put you through to the right people ... well eventually anyway, I rang Liverpool last week and eventually after repeating myself 3 times found out the person I needed was on annual leave, but the 3rd person was still very helpful with some things

    It depends on your individual trust, all we've been told so far is mid-end September. Where will you be based?

    Hi,

    I don't know much about the area you want to do (I'm starting this year for Medical Physics) but the best advice I can give you, is to try and get some work experience/volunteer and visit as many hospitals as you can related to what you want to do.

    Also try to read about the subject and keep up to date with what's going on and any new techniques/theories.

    This will help a lot when writing your application and give you lots to talk about in your interview.

    Hope that helps

    Nat89, very jealous that you're in Liverpool, that was my first choice, but I'm now going to be working in Kent - want to swap? Liverpool's great, and whilst there are some dodgy areas, it's not as bad as people might make out. For the Royal and uni, Kensington (known as Kenny) is within walking distance, and has a Tesco and loads of other shops and stuff. I lived there for two years and never had any problems If you're in Kensington fields there's lots of students around there, if you go a bit further into Kenny it's more families.

    My post is in Nottingham with MSc in either Manchester or Birmingham (I don't know which yet!)

    I don't know anything about Nottingham, I currently live on the South Coast, does anybody have advice on where to live etc.?

    Congratulations! Im on the reserves for Cardiac, I doubt many will be dropping out now, but it seems there is still a slight chance what with a few being offered places recently.
