An ICTP Meeting

The ICTP will organize, with the support of the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP), the European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP), the Federation of African Medical Physics Organizations (FAMPO) and the Italian Association of Medical Physics (AIFM), a two-week School on Medical Physics for Radiation Therapy.
The objective of the school is to contribute to the understanding of physics applied to radiation oncology and the development of competent medical physicists who can make a direct contribution to the improvement of health care in their countries through better radiation therapy. 
This will be achieved by providing participants with education and practical training to enhance their effectiveness as future disseminators of this knowledge, who can provide in turn educational and training opportunities to other medical physicists, professionals and students. 
The programme will introduce the physics applied to conventional and advanced therapy principle, methods and technology and will facilitate the creation of a network for the exchange of information on radiotherapy physics among scientists in developing and developed Member States.
  • Radiobiology applied to radiation therapy
