European Medical Physics News (EMPnews)
The purpose of EMP News is to bring attention to the activities of medical physicists all over Europe, via presentation of their activities and those of National Member Organisations.
All medical physicists are welcome to submit articles or ideas for articles, by emailing the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org. The editorial board of EMP News particularly encourages submission of short articles written by early-career medical physicists, including PhD students, resident physicists, graduate students in medical physics, highlighting their work activities and/or research.
We also encourage submission of announcements and reports of events of interest to our European community of medical physicists.
Articles in EMP News by EFOMP Company Members illustrate the latest innovations and leading technologies to improve patient safety, quality and clinical outcomes.
Educational and professional news items are also of interest for EMP News. For example, articles describing national “International Day of Medical Physics” events are welcome. We are also keen to explore the “human” side of being a medical physicist and we are happy to receive submissions for EMP News’s “what Medical Physicists do in their free time” section.
