IPEM at the International Conference on Medical Physics
MEMBERS and National Office staff from IPEM will be attending the International Conference on Medical Physics next week.
The conference is taking place from 6 – 9 December in Mumbai, India, with a theme of ‘Innovations in Radiation Technology & Medical Physics for Better Healthcare’. IPEM has attended the ICMP regularly for many years.
IPEM will have a stand at the conference, where delegates can chat to staff about membership, training, publishing opportunities and accreditation.
The IPEM team will also be hosting a member gathering at the stand on Thursday 7 December from 3.30pm – 4.15pm, and Dr Anna Barnes, IPEM’s President, is recording a special video message for IPEM delegates attending the conference.
IPEM led sessions
Members and National Office staff will also be leading symposium sessions during the conference:
- Professor Indra Das, an IPEM Fellow, who is Director of Medical Physics at Northwestern University in Chicago and Chair of IPEM’s ebooks advisory board, will lead two sessions on 7 December on ‘Applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Cancer Radiation Treatment’ and on the ‘Emergence of MR-Linac for Adaptive Radiation Therapy’
- Dr Claire-Louise Chapple, IPEM's Vice President International, is jointly hosting a session with Dr John Damilakis, President of the International Organization for Medical Physics, on ‘Radiation Safety Culture in Healthcare’ on 8 December
- Dr Jemimah Eve, IPEM’s Director of Policy and Impact, and Dr Chapple will lead an IPEM symposium on ‘Growing Careers in Medical Physics’, specifically about training, development and professionalism, also on 8 December.
Dr Barnes said: ‘Attending the ICMP is a great way to showcase what IPEM can offer to potential new members. It also gives us the opportunity to attract new authors for our international journals, raise awareness of IPEM’s Masters level accreditation framework, and the chance to network with colleagues from across the world of medical physics.’
