Education at the IMPT


IMPT Education

Founding principles of the IMPT were education and progression of the profession. These principles continue today. The IMPT organises exclusive events for members throughout the year on a wide variety of subjects. There are also other exclusive member education opportunities available through the website, newsletter and the Journal.


The IMPT is recognised by the UK DoH as the registration body for Maxillofacial Prosthetists. Guidance was given to all NHS Hospital Trusts that MFP’s should be registered with the IMPT.

All Maxillofacial Prosthetists have also to be registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) as our scope of practice involves the treatment of patients involving the mouth and the manufacture of dental and medical devices. This requirement came into effect on the 1st August 2008.
