History of the EFOMP School

EFOMP and the European Scientific Institute (ESI) have been responsible for running the European School of Medical Physics (ESMP) at Archamps, France since 1997. It was aimed at physics graduates in the early stage of their career in medical physics or those considering such a career. The school’s programme consisted of 6 weeks of lectures and practicals covering the main areas of medical physics from Medical Imaging through to Radiotherapy. One of the characteristics of the school was that it allowed a small group of 30 or so students to work and study together for a week or longer and a major factor in its success has been Yves Lemoigne, the Director of the School. However it was felt that it was time to look at the future of the school. The educational process for training medical physicists was developing, largely due to the efforts of EFOMP.

There was strong support for continuing with the concept of the school, while it was recognised that it was important to get some form of official recognition for the training that students had received. There was also a need to direct some effort towards short courses at the MPE level, as EFOMP has pioneered with the  School for Medical Physics Experts in Prague in July 2013.
