IMPW 2023 (24-28 April 2023)
April 24 - April 28
We celebrate the International Medical Physics Week (IMPW) in April 2023, from Monday 24 to Friday 28. IMPW is a great opportunity for medical physics scientific and professional societies to organize events to make
- healthcare professionals and the public understand the clinical role of medical physicists and the reasons why we are essential to hospitals.
- undergraduate physics students recognize the medical physics career path.
- healthcare authorities and hospital boards understand what can go wrong without a medical physicist. Do they know, for example, that without clinically qualified medical physicists, certain medical procedures can lead to serious incidents and accidents?
As in previous years, IOMP organizes a series of webinars during the Week. In a world in which information instantly crosses borders, learning new methods, policies, and activities is critical for the success of our profession. All webinars will be freely available so anyone can register and benefit from the expertise of invited speakers. The recorded webinars are going to be uploaded on IOMP’s website for those who are not able to watch them live.
IOMP regional organizations (ROs) and national member organizations (NMOs) are encouraged to organize activities that will result in the promotion of the subject of medical physics globally. Based on the success of IMPW, it may be expected that the number of activities associated with this event each year will increase, contributing to greater international understanding of the role of medical physics and medical physicists in healthcare.
It is my privilege to celebrate the IMPW 2023 with you.
It is with excitement to be celebrating another International Medical Physics Week in 2023 – the year when IOMP will celebrate its 60th Anniversary. The 60 years of IOMP have been characterized by the growth of medical physics profession internationally not only in numbers, but also in gaining recognition as a profession that significantly contributes to advancement of medical sciences and the associated technologies.
We hope that our webinar offerings will nicely complement your other local and/or national celebration of medical physics profession, allowing you to meet and greet your international colleagues online and to learn more about interesting topics and the latest advancements in our fields.
We encourage you to participate in all topics presented, including those that may not be your primary area of expertise, to broaden your knowledge of current medical physics research, technical developments, clinical activities and even professional issues related to education and certification of medical physicists internationally.
Our webinars allow you to connect and be part of this large collegial community – even if the medical physics numbers in your country may be on the smaller side. You can reach out and discuss your questions with the experts in the field and also earn CPD/CME points for each webinar attended in full.
We are aiming to offer a webinar program of excellent educational and inspirational value
Looking forward to seeing you online in April.
