The new DIRAC web page is available with a new web interface and visual features. Users can view and upload information on individual radiotherapy centres and also data summaries for countries, regions and for the entire world. While the content is the same, the new DIRAC website is more detailed and collaborative in terms of data analysis and interactive maps.

We would like to inform you for the calendar of the European School of Medical Physics Experts 2017 (ESMPE).
The attendance of the School is an excellent opportunity for Medical Physicists to improve their skills, either helping them to achieve Medical Physics Expert (MPE) status or for existing MPEs to use their CPD points.
European School for Medical Physics Experts - Prague 2017.
Winter edition "Imaging in Radiotherapy" , January 26 – January 28, 2017. The school will be aimed at advanced tasks connected with Imaging in Radiotherapy. The school will cover the main physics aspects of the different imaging technologies used to support target volume definition, patient positioning and response to treatment assessment, during radiotherapy. Please find the course time table at http://www.csfm.cz/winter2017.html
There are still three seats available
Summer edition "Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Advanced clinical applications - Safety aspects - Quality controls" July 6 - July 8, 2017. The school will be aimed at advanced tasks connected with Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The school will cover the main physics aspects of the MRI technology and will focus on Safety aspects involved in the use of MRI and Quality controls of MRI equipments. The event will be accredited by EBAMP (European Board of Accreditation in Medical Physics). http://www.ebamp.eu/
Electronic registration will be functional from 1 February 2017 at www.csfm.cz/summer2017.html .
Please find attached the draft programme
During the ESMPE Summer School (July 6 - July 8, 2017), the EFOMP Examination Board (EEB) will organize its 1st examinations for
• the European Diploma of Medical Physics (EDMP) in the field of ‘Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology’
• the European Attestation Certificate to those who have reached the level of the Medical Physics Expert (EACMPE) in the field of ‘Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology’.
Please find attached the banner stand version of the ESMPE School poster which can be used on the National Societies websites and Social media accounts.
You can contact the Communications and Publications committee at firstname.lastname@example.org (Gaspar Sanchez Merino and Efi Koutsouveli), in case you are interested in additional material (leaflets) to be distributed in your societies' events.
We also remind you to follow EFOMP LinkedIn Company page at https://www.linkedin.com/company/efomp and EFOMP Twitter account at https://twitter.com/EFOMP_org.
A completely new website is under development.
