To raise awareness about the role medical physicists play for benefit of patients, the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP) organizes annually the International Day of Medical Physics (IDMP) on November 7, an important date in the history of medical physics. On that day in 1867, Marie Sklodowska-Curie, known for her pioneering research on radioactivity, was born in Poland. We celebrate the 3rd IDMP on November 7, 2015. The theme of IDMP 2015 is ‘Better Medical Physics = Better Cancer Care in Radiation Oncology ’. Your support and active participation is greatly appreciated!
I would like extend an open invitation to the Trinidad and Tobago Organization of Medical Physics (TTOMP) outreach lecture this October 20th from 12:00pm-2:00pm in Room 412 located in the Physics Department, UWI St. Augustine.
The presentation will be hosted by the President Mr. Naveen Ratan and the Secretary Ms. Sherisse De Four of the TTOMP.
The lecture will cover numerous topics such as:
- Medical Physics and its role in Trinidad and Tobago.
- Sub-specialties of a Medical Physicist.
- Radiation Oncology Physics
- Diagnostic Medical Physics
- Nuclear Medicine Physics
- Health Physics
- History of the TTOMP
- What the TTOMP can do for you as a student.
- Membership options.
The event is open not just to Physics students but to all departments interested in the field. I look forward to seeing a great turn out! Application forms will be available from Miss. De Four after the talk.
