Scientific Calendar Event

You are cordially invited to participate in the Graduation Ceremony of the students of the 9th cycle of the Master of Advanced Studies in Medical Physics, a two-year advanced training programme in the field of medical physics, jointly organised by ICTP and the Trieste University and co-sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The first year is spent at ICTP while the second year is dedicated to clinical professional training in a Medical Physics Department of an Italian hospital of the training network, supported by the Italian Association of Medical Physics (AIFM). The International organisation for medical physics (IOMP) has given an international accreditation to the programme. The programme is supporting LMI countries in the development of medical physics, an applied physics sector contributing to the development, introduction and use of advanced technologies in the medical sector.
