MPE accreditation and registration

Which is the Procedure for approval of a National Registration Scheme (NRS) by EFOMP? 

EFOMP started an updated procedure on approval of National Registration Schemes at the end of 2018.

The main criteria for acceptance of a national registration scheme, the procedure that has to be followed and the evaluation form can be found at: 
PROCEDURE for approval of National Registration Schemes by EFOMP

The most important criteria are the admission requirements and the contents of the education and training programme.

 

How do I apply for accreditation for an educational event?

The European Board for Accreditation in Medical Physics (EBAMP) has been set up by medical physics societies across Europe represented by the European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP). It is an independent organisation that accredits medical physics education and training events. It does this by allocating Continuous Professional Development (CPD) credits depending on the number of hours of education and hands-on training required of participants. The role of EFOMP in the accreditation process ceased in November 2016 when responsibility was handed over to the European Board for the Accreditation in Medical Physics (EBAMP).

Interested applicants may visit  the EBAMP website. For more information on accreditation and CPD points email: Contact emails 

 

I would like to receive an EEB diploma and I am already a certified medical physicists (for example by American Board of Radiology, American Board of Medical Physics, etc.). Do I still have to sit for an EEB exam?

There is no equivalency between EEB exams and the ones you are mentioning. That`s why you have to sit for EEB exams to receive an EEB diploma. Also please be aware that EEB diploma doesn`t replace any national certificate or licence requested by national legislations for physicists to work as MP or MPEs.

EEB provides diplomas/certificates to those medical physicists that have reached a certain level in medical physics in order to be recognized by the relevant national competent authorities. In other words, you are not recognized as a clinically qualified MP only by including an EEB certificate in your CV. It is up to a national competent authority to recognize you as a clinical MP taking into consideration your CV i.e. clinical training, experience etc.

More information can be found at EEB subpage

 

MPE education

Who can access the EFOMP e learning platform?

The EFOMP elearning platform opened in January 2019.

Access to the EFOMP elearning platform in 2019, has been granted to all the European Congress of Medical Physics 2018 registered participants and to collegues that have attended the EFOMP school editions since 2013.

In 2020 access will be granted only to individual associate members of EFOMP. 

 

How do I apply for grants?

In order to attend the EFOMP events you can apply for the ENEN+ grants https://plus.enen.eu/grants/. The ENEN project supports financially, through mobility grants, students and professionals wishing to carry out education or training activities in medical physics. These actions need to be completed before the end of the project (31st September 2020). 

The full  process is described in the ENEN+ manual 

While applying choose the 'Medical applications' field: https://enenplus.fluidreview.com/. Upcoming deadlines: 30th November, January 31, March 31, July 31!

The applicants of the mobility actions may be:
