Five areas are covered by the PTP, including:

  1. Life sciences (blood sciences; infection sciences; tissue and cellular diagnostics; genetics)

  2. Clinical engineering (medical engineering; radiation engineering; renal technology rehabilitation engineering)

  3. Medical physics technology (radiotherapy physics, radiation physics; nuclear medicine)

  4. Cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep sciences (cardiac physiology, respiratory and sleep physiology)
