International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) has started to celebrate a week devoted to the contributions of medical physicists to healthcare as International Medical Physics Week (IMPW) from 2020. This year to celebrate the IMPW, the IOMP School organized a series of webinars during April 26-30 2021. The purpose of these webinars was popularizing the medical physics profession among professional colleagues in the clinical and non-clinical field and also among the public. These activities also intend to promoting awareness of medical physics among physics colleagues and to let them know how their students can find a career in medical physics. On April 28, 2021 (Day-3), Asia Oceania Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics (AFOMP) organized and hosted two hour long webinar on ‘Patient Radiation Protection’ on the occasion of IMPW 2021.
