School of Medical Physics for Radiation Therapy: Dosimetry and Treatment Planning for Basic and Advanced Applications
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) will organize, with the support of the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP), the European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP), the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the Associazione ltaliana di Fisica Medica (AIFM), a School on Medical Physics for Radiation Therapy to take place from 27 March to 7 April, 2017.
The topic will be: Applied Physics of Medical Radiation Therapy - Dosimetry and Treatment Planning for Basic and Advanced Applications. The School will specially address the needs of healthcare in low and middle income countries.
Objective of the school
The objective of the School is to contribute to the understanding of Physics applied to Radiation Therapy 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 professionals and students.
