International Commission on Medical Physics


To strengthen the role of medical physics in science, the IOMP has established a formal relationship with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). The committee IComMP has been recognized as the Affiliated Commission AC.4 Medical Physics of the IUPAP.
In accordance with the aims of the IOMP, the mission of IComMP is to advance medical physics science and practice worldwide by disseminating scientific and technical information, strengthening the interaction of medical physics with other branches of physics, fostering the educational and professional development of medical physicists, and promoting the highest quality medical services for patients. IComMP has access to the IUPAP program which sponsors international meetings, specifically encourages female scientists to engage in science and offers the annual IUPAP Young Scientists Prize to acknowledge outstanding research of junior physicists.
