Friends and colleagues from across Europe meet in York for council meeting

MEDICAL physicists from across Europe arrived in York for the annual council and board meeting of the European Federation of Οrganisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP).

The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, as one of the 34 National Member Organisations of EFOMP, hosted this year’s event in York.

This was the first time the meeting has been hosted by IPEM and is only the second time the meeting has been held in the UK. The board meeting was held in central York, with the council meeting being held at IPEM’s National Office in the city.

Professor David Brettle, IPEM President, welcomed the delegates to York.

He said: ‘I’m delighted IPEM has been able to host the EFOMP board and council meeting in York for the very first time and it has been fantastic to see so many friends and colleagues from across Europe attend.’

Following the council and board meeting in York, the EFOMP delegates headed down to Sandown Park to the MEIBioeng/MPEC 2017 conference, where a whole programme was dedicated to the work of EFOMP.
