Know more

There is a worldwide scientific community specializing in Medical Physics. The medical physicist working throughout the nation established NAMP in 2009 to form our own association to recognize internationally in medical physics world. It has also life members form others diciplines like radiation oncologist, radiololgists , nuclear medicine physician and technologists. Raising awareness of Medical Physics profession is the great importance for our society. NAMP is affiliated with IOMP representing more than 18000 Medical Physicists worldwide. The classification of medical physicists by International Labor Organization (ILO) i.e. medical physicists are now recognized as health professionals worldwide.

IAEA has taken initiative in strengthening medical physics in developing countries. There is a trend to appoint a trainee physicist and trained him to be a medical physicist in Nepal. There are 9 male medical physicists including one in diagnostic radiology teaching faculty. We shared and exchanged our professional and scientific problems for seeking their solution. Justification of uses of ionizing radiation in human health, abreast with new advanced technologies in therapeutic and diagnostic imaging clinical application are challenging in Nepal. Only doing clinical routine medical physics work will not be enough research and education is also important. To meet the future requirement of medical physicists in country a formal courses or residency program is essential. The uniform medical physics training program, the accreditation system for medical physicist is to be introduced. Though we are still small in number and remain rather insignificant internationally but with our continuous effort in learning and improving ourselves we will advance education and our practice. Professional recognition and accreditation is essential.
