Interests

  1. Development of electronic learning material
    The Education & Training Committee is looking at the development of a body of learning material that can be made available through the EFOMP website.
  2. European School for Medical Physics Expert (ESMPE)
    The ESMPE organises medical physics education and training events specifically targeted towards Medical Physicists who are already Medical Physics Experts or would like to achieve MPE status. Find more information at: https://www.efomp.org/index.php?r=pages&id=esmpe-about

Accreditation

The European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP) established the European Board for Accreditation in Medical Physics (EBAMP) in 2016. EBAMP is an independent organisation that accredits medical physics education and training events. It does this by allocating Continuous Professional Development (CPD) credits depending on the number of hours of education and hands-on training required of participants. Detailed information can be found at http://www.ebamp.eu/
