  1. The Harold Johns Medal

The Harold Johns Medal is established to honor scientists who have distinguished themselves through excellence in teaching and contributions to international education.

  1. The John Mallard Award

The IOMP is pleased to announce the establishment of the John Mallard Award. The award will honour a medical physicist who has developed an innovation of high scientific quality and who has successfully applied this innovation in clinical practice (e.g. equipment, software, methodology), or who has led a team developing this innovation. This Award will be given triennially at the IOMP International Conference on Medical Physics. The first John Mallard Award will be presented at the 22nd ICMP, December 9 – 12, 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The Award consists of an IOMP Plaque, presented at the ICMP. A short Biography of the Awardee will be published in the IOMP Newsletter Medical Physics World.

Criteria for selection:
• The recipient should be a medical physicist working in academia, clinical practice, or industry, or the leader of a team in such an environment.
• Evidence of technological innovation can include: peer-reviewed publications, commercialization of a device or product, and availability in clinical practice of the technology. Nominations must include such evidence in the form of one or more supporting letters as well as copies of publications.

Nominating Procedure
• The award will be widely advertised on the IOMP mailing list and website and through regional medical physics organisations.
• Nominations can be made by IOMP National Member Organizations (NMO), by an IOMP committee chair, or by an IOMP officer.
