Abstract

One of the main aims of the European Federation for Organisations of Medical Physics is to propose guidelines for education, training and accreditation programmes. This is achieved through the publication of Policy Statements and the organisation of education and training course, seminars and conferences. This is a continuous effort in an attempt to harmonise the education and training of the Medical Physicist across Europe. This paper presents an overview of the past, present and future efforts of EFOMP to achieve this aim.
