November 7, 2018: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF MEDICAL PHYSICS
Medical Physics for Patient Benefit
Message from the IAEA staff in the Dosimetry and Medical Radiation Physics Section
We are pleased to join all medical physicists around the world in the 2018 celebration of the International Day of Medical Physics. This year’s theme is related to how we benefit patients on a daily basis, which is one of the main reasons that most of us chose this profession over other fields of Physics. We are sure that you can remember the day that you were introduced to the field and we hope that this celebration of our profession always reminds you of this day. The application of physics in the clinical environment to the diagnosis and treatment of patients, as well in the laboratories that provide us with traceability in dosimetry, is ever-evolving and expanding. We hope that the IAEA’s commitment to safe and effective treatment, quality assurance and dosimetry benefits your daily activities in the form of guidance documents, educational material, codes of practice, dosimetry audit services and technical cooperation opportunities. We look forward to continuing to support the medical physics profession.
