International Day of Medical Physics

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!
