Message from the IOMP President, Dr. Kin Yin Cheung

 

Medical physicists play an important role in healthcare services, research and development of healthcare technologies and clinical techniques, and teaching and training of healthcare professionals. Yet, they are in general invisible to members of the public. In order to promote the visibility and professional status of the medical physicists, it is important for us to show our presence to the community. The International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP) is one of the initiatives taken by IOMP to raise the profile of our profession to the public. November 7, the birthday of Marie Sklodowska-Curie has been named by IOMP as the International Day of Medical Physics. The Chairman of ETC, Professor John Damilakis of University of Crete in Greece is leading a task group in planning and coordinating a series of professional, educational and scientific activities to mark this meaningful day in 2013. This will be an annual event and we hope to draw the attention of the global community to the event and to generate sufficient momentum to ensure its continuity in the future. We are trying to bring together as many medical physicists as possible from all over the world to participate in this exercise. Your support and active participation will be most appreciated. Please keep an eye on the IOMP website for further details of the activities.
